Title: Bolt + Grease nipple in T35 Swingingarm
Post by: douglas1947 on 18 Jan 2019 at 16:11
Im working on a MK5 and have to fit the bolts for the torsion bar links in the brackets in the swinging arm.
I wonder about fitting it the hexagon head from gearbox side or reverse?

On my MK1 it is fitted reverse - from wheel axle side (not so nice to put grease in the nipples).

When I try on the MK5 the bolts wont  fit the bores from gearbox side with the shanks,  only the thread passes.
Is it the wrong way or shall I ream up the bore?
