I do as much of the work as possible myself. I was a flunky type at a service station back when I was a kid, so I learned quite a bit there. Most of the time it's stuff I'm familiar with. Sometimes there's a learning curve, manuals and YouTube hel

Check at a Shell distributor. I tracked it down that way, albeit not at my local distributor, which is a tad problematic. The pricing is pretty amazing, though. Ammofirst: It won't be A3 (but will be similar in some respects) because it's E6, and

It doesn't say that at all, though. I've never seen a gasoline engine manual recommend to use the thickest grade listed, and this one is no exception. It simply does not say that 0w-20 and 5w-30 are both too thin. He also can use a 5w-30 with an H

IF I were doing this job I would replace the hub, all that heating with a torch may have buggered the bearing grease and a new hub may be in the cards sooner than later anyway. Well done getting it apart. nice save.
