Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf
What do i need to take of an axle off 97 golf
U don't need any air tools
1st remove the axle nuts with a 30mm socket
2nd you put the car on jack stands
3rd You pull apart the entire brake assembly
4th remove the 3 bolts holding on lower ball joint (don't remove strut from steering knuckle it will mess up the alignment of the vehicle)
5th now you can loosen the six axle bolt useing a 8mm triple square drive ( 12 point not the 6 point torx!!)
6th now you pull down the control arm and remove the axle

U need an air compressor ( prefferably) an air gun or really good ratchet, a VERY long extension for ur ratchet/ air gun and a torx bit. Cant remember which size bit it is by heart.
Need an air gun to remove the wheel lug nuts, and then the center bolt from the axle. (think its 32mm)
Then with ur torx bit, remove the 6 bolts around the axle, they are about 4 inches from the tranny.
The extension for ur ratchet needs to be about 30 inches long.
