Rear Axle Bolt

Inexpensive Removal Tool

Here is a quick video of a trick to remove the rear axle bolt without the special M24 Allen. I kindly goofed in the video. I only add two nuts to the bolt, but I call them the 2nd and 3rd nut. Sorry. What I meant to say, it's the 2nd and 3rd Hex I am adding to the assembly. A small tack weld on the 2nd nut (or 3rd hex) would be a good idea. This trick should work for removal and installation with tightening to 71 ft lbs. Pinch bolts are 11 ft lbs.
