Hi guys,

Does anyone have the spreader tool? I would appreciate a loan or I can buy it off you. It would delay my install over a week if I order.I'm in Sunnyvale, CA; if you are nearby in the Bay I can drive over.

The schwaben one says Dec 12 delivery. I did order a similar tool that says it’s for the Audi. It’s 8.5mm which should be good based on what I measured. Thanks

Short pry bar works just fine, no need for the tool. Hit it with a little Kroil or PB Blaster too.

Interesting... I don't recall them being any more difficult than BC's or PSS/PSS9s but it has been a few years...

Pry bar, hammer to vibrate, and shaking the knuckle works. What exactly is your issue?
I have the schwaben tool and it honestly doesn't work that great. I don't think it's wide enough to spread the sleeve, I never had luck with it.

Harbor freight pickle fork fits and works.
