As the title states I am putting a new rear main seal in my 1.8t A4 and have no idea what the torque specs are for the bolts that fasten the seal in. I ahve a Bentley manual but it doesn't say.[headbang][headbang][headbang] Also I am not sure what grease to use between the axles and the transmision and the driveshaft. Any help is good. Thanx.

My Bentley manual tells me that the rear main seal bolts need 10Nm to tighten them.


When you ask what kind of grease to use are you referring to the grease in the boots?

Thanks man!!! What page is this on? I looked front to back in my book and I can't find it.
About the grease, there is some kind of grease between where the axle flange mates up to the flange on the tranny. likewise where the drive shaft bolts to the rear of the tranny.
