For those of you who own VWs and Audis and work on them regularly — you know who you are — Snap-on’s made life a little easier with a custom socket specifically designed to ease the removal and installation of Polydrive head bolts
No offense intended, but after working on my 944S2, I’ve sworn that I’ll never buy a German car again. Lease one, maybe. But not buy. However, I know from email that more than a few of you are fans of the yellow, black, and red and are willing to do what it takes to keep ’em running — even if that means removing the front of the car and moving the radiator into the “service position” to replace an alternator.
If you’ve never heard of polydrive, you can ignore this post — and count yourself lucky.
The #10 (pictured) will sell for $28 and should be available from your friendly local truck right now.
