Hmmm, I figured I might need one or two special tools. I skimmed the service manual and saw one listed, if you've got the PNs that would be much appreciated... Short cut method to pulling the CVT???That is assuming you have studied some of the threads on removing, disassembly, reassembly and replacing the CVT and have the special tools you will need on hand.
PRIMARY PULLEY STOPPER BOLT
This bolt (see photo below) has been removed from K8, and a new bolt purchased with identical dimensions.
The new bolt does not seem to want to go back in. The bolt head no longer hard mates to CVT casing. There is a gap between bolt head and casing even if recommended torque applied !
What is the purpose of the reduced bolt diameter under the bolt head? Is it for O-ring, or shimings?
Is there a procedure for align'ing the Primary Pulley with this bolt 's location in casing so that bolt inserts fully?
Can it be done without engine removal?
