Guibo torque

The instructions state to tighten by nuts only. I don't think I can get the socket in with the torque wrench from the transmission side. Are there alternatives?

There is a spot but you need a wobble extension. I don't know how experienced or strong you are but just use a wrench, box end. You are going to go tight, likely as hard as you can without adding extra leverage. They are locking nuts so check them again after diving some time. When your arm is sore you will likely be done.

Having done this a few weeks ago, I just removed the Transmission cross-member and supported the Trans with a jack. Not fun but do-able.

How can you get an accurate torque with a wobble extension?

This is disappointing. I'm just about to do mine.

You can't, there isn't enough space.
I used the wrench on the nut side and torque wrench on the bolt side. I tried to turn only the nut side, but ended up tightening from both ends. It's hard by yourself, on your back.

Yes torque is torque, but you don't need to worry. Torque is important in engines and when installing TTY bolts but some bolts just need to be tight and not get loose, this means torque does not have to be absolutely followed.

That is not good. You definitely don't want to turn the metal spacer in the rubber. If the spacer stayed put and only the bolt moved no worries but... It will kill the guibo early, maybe not tomorrow but... You would be better leaving it where it is than allowing the chance of torquing that part in the rubber. If there was absolutely no choice then I would grease the chite out of that end.

You would need a torque adaptor or extension like this:





But I always torque them from the bolt; never a problem.

You know, that might actually work if your wrench can torque in both directions. Otherwise, the transmission mount would still be in the way of the handle.

Hey, as far as I remember, all nuts on the guibo bolts are on the same side.
I see you reversed the ones on the flange facing the back of the car.
