    Dog bone bush Q?

    Hi there just replaced my dog bush for a yellow powerflex, how tight should the bolt be that compreses the two parts together (the long bolt)? Thanks

    Dogbone bolts to subframe - 20Nm + a further 1/4 turn
    Dogbone to gearbox - 40Nm + a further 1/4 turn


    The central bolt that holds the bushes together only needs to be pinched up, otherwise you'll feel too much vibration in the car. Probably only something like 10-15Nm, but there are no figures listed that I can find.


    oh and found this on google within 30 seconds of searching "a3 8l dog bone torque settings", first search result
