    Currently working on pulling my coolant flange and temp sensor at the rear of my 2005 Passat BHW. The passenger side has a bolt and the driver side a nut. When I loosened the driver side but the whole spindle is turning. Seems wrong and has me worried. Any ideas? I haven't pulled it out but it's loose and is holding up my flange repair.

    Not sure why I put this in the wrong thread but I'm new so maybe that's my excuse.

    they use 6mm nuts, 10mm tool, to hold things like the oil feed pipe to turbo in place.. those go on these long ugly bolts that to use a 10mm tool.. a unlucky person has the bolt loosen up before the nut... but ya own a passat.. so started unlucky

    you will need to thin down a 10mm open end wrench to fit between what ever the nut is holding in place and the bolt...
