    This is a thread for you to post up a special tool you made for working on your T2/T4 or a really great tool you bought or found.

    Great thread idea! Anybody made a holder for the primary and secondary clutches for the 2014 and up models so we can actually torque when belt changing?

    Great thread!
    Tip and a tool is replace the two front passenger seat bolts with ones long enough to spread the sheaves when changing belt. The thread and pitch is identical but the factory seat bolt is not long enough. That way you always have them on hand and the seat has to be removed anyway. While your at it throw some washers in the mix to tilt the seat back some.

    I will post a pic later, but to replace a torn CV boot, use a long narrow funnel with the widest part of the opening trimmed down enough to just fit over the CV. After removing the old boot and cleaning up the CV, place the funnel on top of the CV, lube it up and with a buddy, pop the new boot right down onto the shaft over the funnel. All in one quick motion works best. Depending on which boot you are replacing, you may have to turn the boot inside out first. No more messing with those darn C clips for me! Works like a charm!

    20150306_182727.jpg I didn't get any pics of doing the install, but here is what I used. Just trimmed it down to where it fit just on the cv.
