I have saved myself over $400 by doing both of my front drive axle replacements. The dealer wanted to charge me over a $1000.00 and another Auto repair shop that works on foreign cars wanted $600.00. Try it yourself sometimes and you may be able to save yourself lots of money.
does anyone have instruction that accompany pictures of how to replace the axel for 00 audi a6 quattro
when I did mine I got a manual, the average metric tool set will work but you will need a spline bit tool for the drive shaft bolts (about 70 bucks) it's not a allen or torks and you will only strip them out if you try to use one. the manual has detailed pick but read it first I do maintenance work by trade and it only took about a hour to do both
