    A 14mm allen socket in a local store. I can order one, but I hate waiting.


    I've been everywhere.

    Sears, all the local auto parts stores except Autozone because I didn't feel like driving there...I will tomorrow, even the Snap on truck didn't have it on the truck and they wanted 18 bucks for it with a week wait.

    What the hell. I can't even take the spindle and hub off now.

    I'm gonna be pissed if I have to order this thing. I think I'll go to a few german auto specialists to borrow theirs if I can't find one.

    But UPS came, I think my control arms and tie rods are here...Something to look up too.

    look into your local hardware stores. I have a local place called "The Tool Shed" which has any tool you could need. Maybe you have something similar where you are?

    I was thinking about making it. I actually started then grinded one side too low and got mad.

    I guess I'll check a few places today, if not I'll stop by Audi and just take the bolt out and take it real easy on the way home...

    Thats why I got rid of my VW's






    I HATE all those friggin alan head bolts...EVERYTHING on the stupid car was attached w/those goddamn things and they'd just strip out everytime I tried to replace something. I'm getting pissed all over again just thinking about it

    I went to Autozone...they had a 3 pc set with 12, 14 and 17 for $9.

    Oh yea, I hate those torx bits with a passion. I had to cut 2 of the heads off the axle because I stripped them.

    My 944 had them also. It's a german thing, they use those bolts to piss people off.

    But at least my other parts are here also, so I can be progressive today and finish it all up.
