Messed up big time this morning I accidentally stripped one of the two big bolt hole that the trans-axle mount to. Any ideas on how i can fix this? Don't know the size of the bolts and am having trouble trying to figure out if i should buy a threader tool or what. Any help would be greatly extremely appreciated.

buy a bigger tap and tap out each side... bring the old bolt to the tool shop so they can tell you what is the next size up is. I would go with a standard thread type .... Or weld a bolt into the hole and use a nut to attach the mount.

I think it's a 18 x 1.25 a heli coil will set you back around sixty bones! you might be able to tow it to a vw garage/ machine shop and they'll do it for you. Daltons Idea would be the easest though, good lusk and please let us know how it turned out!
