    you mean the spring loaded button for locking the shaft inplace whilst undoing the nut??????????????

    the button by the stamped text 58A

    then yes it has.

    I fitted a Neuspeed and promply removed it, it was awful.


    the nut should be done up to 25nm iirc and a new nut used,. (pence from Audi)

    iirc the nut wasnt a "round thread" it was a sort of oval, locking flange nut

    i followed instructions on Waks site.
