Question about 1996 Volkswagen Passat
Really stuck one of the six spline torx bolts holding the driveshaft to the transmission as worn away cant get a torx to get in their all it does is spins any suggestions?
If your torx bolt splines are shot.
Hammer on the surface face, with a long round drift to loosen the bolt threads slightly, and close up the torx hole, and try the torx splined socket again.
If no good try mole grips on the head of the bolt to loosen it.
If not enough room for them, try a chisel on the outer edge of the bolt, this normally does it.
Failing this try hammering on a slightly smaller external socket, than the head of the bolt, then try removing.
Good Luck !
Let me know how you get on.
A FixYa rating would be nice !
