How are u tryna get it out. i cant for the life of me find a 17mm hex bit SHORT ENOUGh to get in there. If u can help me find a socket HEX bit short enough, ill help u?? jk. If u can find a hex bit small enough id use some Universal's. UJOINTS and move it around the cradle to get some leverage with a breaker bar.....
oh, well that was my other solution...DAMN, lol Well u know u can also try taking a pipe and sliding it over the vicegrips and using the pipe for leverage. i doubt ull strip it, u jsut may want to consider replacing the fill plug or taking a wire wheel to it to clean it up a little. I say soak it in PB Blaster and give it a go if u can. Once u break it loose...should be pie
Yeah I tried soaking it in PB blaster yesterday. Still nothing. Are you sure it wont snap or get stuck in there or anything? I was seriously pulling the back of my car down a half inch to an inch.
How much force do you think this thing can take? What would happen if I did snap the fill plug off into the rear diff?
i doubt ull snap it into the diff.... if its rusted on, then its rusted on, lol if u trully cant get it, i would buy a fill plug, take it to a shop and have them extract it or use air tools. The pipe will deff help though imo.
Sorry, transmission oil plug. The one thats like a 16 or 17mm tripple square with a point in the middle?
I used youngm7's idea, put a wrench over the bit. Made it so much easier.
I have this one http://www.ecstuning.com/Volkswagen-...ission/ES8234/ it's not cheap, so try to find someone to borrow it from. I needed an adapter to get this sucker onto my torque wrench since it had a 1/2" drive, the adapter was just long enough to get it to clear that thin pipe right in front of the fill plug

I think that I should be able to construct a simple apparatus to hold the camera in place for a neat shot.
It would be a shot of the cluster again, where the red pins should be blurred. Might require some tricky maneuvering but totally doable if you think it would be cool.
After having them for a while. I would say that I really enjoy no longer having a blind spot. But the ECS made ones are poor quality and not worth the $100 after shipping. Find legitimate euro ones. thats what Im going to do soon.
