      Do you have a Bentley service manual, it is a must have for anyone servicing a VW.
      http://www.bentleypublishers.com/vol...ir-manual.html

      When asking for questions in the Mk2 forum, you will get people like myself inquiring if you own the manual. The reason we do this is to save you time, since the manual will answer many questions you have and future questions. All you have to do is read it, my manual is tattered from reading it over the years. Link to my pic. http://www.3dzubehor.com/webpics/olddirtybastard.JPG


      When you replace the wp, you don't have to replace the wp housing which requires the remove of the alternator and ac compressor.

      Where is the bolt located?
      My advice when replacing the wp, replace all the bolts on the wp too. Make sure they are stainless steel or add anti-seize to non SS bolts.
      Also do not use the paper gasket, use the metal/rubber gasket as used on the Mk3 ABA engines.

      On shouldered bolts, you can use an 11mm 12pt socket, hammer it onto the head of the bolt, and use a wrench to remove the stripped bolt. Non shouldered bolts I think you use a 13mm 12pt socket. You can then put the bolt in a bench vise or use visegrips to work the socket off. Additionally you could hammer a male torx socket and try to remove it that way. For stubborn one, an air chisel can help.

      Pictures?
      Always a way.
      Air chisel, as mentioned, is a very powerful weapon. Another easy try is to hammer a 1/4" allen key into the stripped out 6mm hole. Or, if that or the abovementioned socket trick don't work, you might try welding a nut to the stripped head and wrenching it off.
      There's always vicegrips... And remember, Heat is your friend. It's amazing what a propane torch will help loosen. Aim it at the threaded end of the bolt, but watch out for wires and hoses!

      If you need ANYTHING from China, let me know. I'm not talking about door handles. I'm talking containers of anything made there. I can cut out all the middlemen.

      lotsa lube/heat cycles on the threaded end. Big visegrips, with the course teeth (closer to jaw pivot point) clamped super tight should do the job, though you may have to take that intermediate shaft sprocket off. I'd still try hammering in a 1/4" allen key as well.
