      Replaced the subframe bolts on the GLI and R32 with the Audi bolts.

      Also got the R32 junction box hooked up and working in the GLI.

      Stick a lint free rag in and take pliers and squeeze around the sides until you hear little crackles which is the glue breaking and it will get looser and looser then eventually break free.

      Make sure you do this after you have run the engine for a while. The warmer the glue on the filler neck is, the easier it will be to break the seal.

      Also, I used a C clamp. It takes a decent amount of force to crack the glue and the C clamp let me just keep cranking until it let go.
