      Yeah.... I always want to fix it, but it's always at the end of my list since it functions properly.

      Haha thanks for letting me know. The mods like to fill up my inbox with warnings, infractions, and whatnot. I'll pm you the details.



      OP! I picked up my a euro front bumper cover today with a 4mo valance. Desperately needs a respray and that will happen as soon as I can unload some of my crap. http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...Tires-lips-etc.



      On the way home I hit some bad patch and broke my dog bone mount. The bolt thats closest to the front snapped off. The big bolt is still on there and the mount seems to still be doing its job. How important is that first bolt anyway? Didn't seem like it would do much anyway.

      Yup that one. Trans completely broke off at that spot. I'd need to replace the casing to fix it, just like neverfollows.

      Mine striped itself out when my other relocating bracket sheared in half, I put a slightly larger bolt in and It threaded itself. You could try to re-tap it using a larger bolt.

      I wish it was that simple, but the transmission part snapped off. It looks like this.

      Ahh! we have this in common, mine was like this when I bought it, someone had mad a bracket using angle iron relocating that mounting point to bolt up to the side of the trans/diff. Heres a pic, its sh*tty but it'll give you the concept. This ended up shearing in half, so I made a thicker one with way better welds not that rusty gunk that is on there.

      Anytime, Just be careful with placement, weld quality and the gauge of the steel, that pos broke right in half and stripped the front mounting point out. Good luck, PM me if you have any questions about it.

      Real easy. I just did it in like 20 minutes. The only pain is that you have to connect the passenger side vent to the center console. The wires you tap into are obvious though. They're the same color and easily assessable.

      that actually keeps the rear bolt from breaking. I had some slack in there allowing the dogbone to move. it actually broke the rear bolt from the force of the engine. got lucky and the rest of the bolt back right out with an easy out. I drove around for a bit with the exhaust sitting on the steering rack until I had time to fix it.
