    Hi all,

    I have a problem with the manifold bolts loosening on my s3 8l can anyone help?

    I have tried using loctite but it just gets burnt off. The bolt in question is different to the other two in terms of the head of the bolt. I wondered if this is usual. Also should there be a threaded bar with a nut also?

    Please help as it keeps coming loose.

    I had this problem for a while. The turbo hanger bolt had come out which was loosing the turbo manifold bolts.

    New turbo hanger bolt and all good never happened again.

    My 2 pence.
