Begging for a Local (Bozeman ish) PolyDrive or Long T50

Post by SlickNic » Oct Sun 31, 2010 5:24 pm

I'm trying to fix the head gasket on my Audi A4 V6 2.8L 30v ATQ over the long weekend (took Monday/Tuesday off) and need to get either a long T50 or a Poly Drive #10 AKA special service tool 3452 to get the head off. If there is anyone in the area that might have this tool and wouldn't mind lending it to me for a weekish I would greatly appreciate it!

There is a possibility that I have that. I have some 12 point thing for CVs, might be the same size?

The 12pt is different. He is looking for a torx

Thanks for all the help guys I found a 10mm Polydrive from the Matco Truck in town. It currently doesn't seem to be working though the tool from ECS tuning that says will work is linked below.

Will keep you updated

Well looks like I'm ordering one so if someone needs this tool let me know I will have it.

I do have to say it's amazingling annoying that VW decided they couldn't use a torx or even the triple square they use in so many other cars, from searching on the net it sounds like this is the only place this tool is ever used in any vehicle.

Thanks again guys!

After looking at that pic, I believe I have one, but I live in MIssoula, so no help there. Chevy, believe it or not, uses those tools to hold thier front seats in their full size trucks from about 99-on. But at least you found one!
