Does anyone know where I can get a tool for removing the nut from the top of the front shocks on my 130 GT Tdi 2003 MK4. Its the one with the hex key in the middle of it. Thanks.

yea no worrys m8, im 90% sure its 21mm? .mine was done up stupidly tight, so tight that i almost thought i couldnt do it,and snapped a few torx bits in the proccess trying to hold the shaft from spinning,but i persevered with it and got it off, then had the same problem with the nut above the bearing,im guessing they were all done up with an airline gun.

I did the spark plug socket trick on mine, one with a hex on the top held with a spanner and an Allen Key right down the middle.

The only issue is that most allen key sets don't have a 7mm so you will probably have to buy one seperate.
