    Right replacing the dog bone bush, all going well, 4 bolts undone and didnt snap.

    all loose but cant come out because what I assume is a strut bar is in the way

    Is this standard? Probably thinking why dont I just unscrew it? haha the Bolts just turn and I cant get to the nut.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Cheers

    Ive seen this on superkarls s3 when i was looking at his dogbone thread looks oem to me, is there a hole on the subframe sumwere? the size of a crosshead screwdriver? i remember changeing a subfram on a polo last year and you have to put a srecwdriver in the hole to lock the nut??? not sure if this is the case on s3

    Its normal. It seems hit and miss to what s3's have these, my apy s3 has one. Anyway its fine to remove it mate but fhe bolts may. E shagged and end up spinning.

    Jus managed to pull the mount out. Took a bit of elbow grease. Yeah they just spin so ill leave that for now and hopefully it wont drop off. Just cleaned the mount and now just have to torque up the new bush :) cheers
