Hi, first day for here, so a bit nervous.

Any road, I need to replace the front shocks on my 1994 Audi 100 Avant.
Judging by the workshop manual, it's a pretty straight forward job, but I need the special tool, 2069a 33mm tube socket. And by the looks of it, it's not avaliable to the public to buy.
Do I really need it ?
If so, where the **** do I get from.
Audi did say that they could order me one for £40, thanks but no thanks.
How do I get over this?
Would be gratefull for ideas.

Cheers.

I think it is 34mm A/F. Get a 34mm A/F nut, turn out the inner to 26 mm dia,weld on a piece of thich wall tube about 100mm long and weld a nut on the top.
You can then use a socket and T bar to undo the nut on the strut.

Cheers Gary100,
