Dog bone mount bolts

Post by Vag-native »

Hi fam, I have an issue with the dog bone mount. The middle bolt that connects the trans to the mount fell off and it's hell to drive with that annoying sound when shifting gears. Is it a střech bolt or can I find it at a local hardware?

I had one of those bolts back out and strip the hole in the bellhousing, after installing an insert I just threw in new 8.8 grade hex socket bolts, no issues at all.
Add a good spring washer to keep tension on the bolt to prevent it backing out again and you should be good.
