  1. Yeah my plan is to forgo the sunk cost fallacy here and count it as about a $600 lesson learned in doing a better job of research on an important part - LNE bearing will be ordered soon. I bought the EPS bearing and the tool kit is likely a second hand LNE tool kit which would explain why it doesn’t work on the bearing. I found a thread adapter that fits both ends and will pull the now trashed bearing out with my tool kit. Hopefully I didn’t do any damage with trying to hammer the EPS bearing in.
  2. Just double checked and the kit is for the 996 single row replacement. Right now I have about a $12k paperweight as i’m not able to even remove the new bearing. The tool kit doesn’t seem to have the proper internal threads for the center bolt.
  3. I have an ‘04 C4S Cabriolet and am doing an engine overhaul. I’m working on installing my new EPS IMS Bearing and it was smooth sailing up until now. The new bearing isn’t seating properly and seems to have bottomed out but it’s not flush with the shaft. As well as, I can’t seem to turn the center bolt either. Any ideas for how to remove it as my extraction kit doesn’t have the proper threads it seems on the extractor tools.
  4. Turning the rear wheels did nothing for it. I was able to cram a gator bit on there with some extensions for a good enough angle to get it off. Did the trick without stripping the bolt too.
  5. I did but perhaps either too far or not far enough? It’s in park but the parking break is off and it’s off the ground - which if i’m not mistaken once the rear wheels leave the ground the parking brake is disabled anyway?
  6. I have an ‘04 C4S Cab with tiptronic transmission that has what looks like an oil leak between the tip and engine. I’m exactly three bolts away from dropping my engine and transmission - one on the drive shaft and two on the engine mounts. However, with everything else disconnected I can’t rotate my driveshaft to get a better angle at the one bolt that’s on top. Any pointers/tips? I had a 90 degree socket that snapped in the process too. Red arrow shows essentially where the last bolt is.
