Also remind me to thank my service department for the wonderful reassembly job... Remind me to take a torque wrench in and explain how it works....<p><IMG SRC="http://i42.tinypic.com/kdlh77.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>That bolt was finger tight.

I always tried to figure out where the point of the jack stand should be placed at the rear. Care to take a picture and help a brotha out <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

I put it in the jack point. I did that by jacking the car up ass backwards. I now realize where I should have put it, and where I will in the future. This vid explains it best. <p><A HREF="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60IXwVRsv38" TARGET="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60IXwVRsv38</A><p>16 seconds in.

So the youtube video, he put it right on the rear bar? Is that even safe? There is not room to put a jack stand and the jack at the same point.

When I had my wiring harness in the driver side door replaced..they didn't even put the carpet back or clean up the wire clippings.

Re: (AutoFahren)

Well that would be a detail department issue then. The kids they hire to wash the cars is ridiculous, they have the most chill job and they cant even do it lol.

Go to the service department and ask the manager if he knows what the torque spec is for that bolt. When he replies, "I don't know, it's in the computer," say "I don't know either, but I'm sure it's tighter than <i>this</i>" and show him the picture. Then ask for a free oil change to make up for it...
