    Default 505gti rear axle

    I have a problem with the rear axle on my 505gti wagon- the wheel nuts on one side were not tightened correctly as a result the wheel studs came loose. my mechanic is trying to source new studs, but we don't know whether the axle plate splines are damaged or not until he finds some.-its alloy wheels which use a longer stud-.SO, I may need to source a complete axle. Does anyone have one if I get stuck?

    Default GTI Rear axle

    Hi Maxy,

    I know of a wagon that is being wrecked in Canberra but it is probably going to be a while before the rear end can be taken from it. I can ask about it if you want, although I am sure that you want a more rapid solution.

    Funnily enough, I was working on my own GTI wagon today - on the rear end! Actually I was finishing replacing the rear brake wheel cylinders.

    Never seen longer studs in a 505, even with a variety of different alloy/mag wheels.

    504 and 505 varieties all share the same studs on the front, and 504 wagons and 505 wagons share the rear studs. I believe 404 rear studs and quite possibly 203 and 403 are the same as 504 and 505 wagons as well. So they shouldn't be too hard to source.

    But if you do have longer studs than usual, I suspect they would be a custom made thing, so you may have to go that route again to replace them.

    Note that 604s were fitted with thicker studs, that require different wheels and nuts to work.

    sorry, the 505 GTI II with factory mags has longer studs than wagons fitted with steelies-about 36mm against 25mm.The studs on my404 are 25mm.Which is why I have trouble sourcing them.
    James S could you chase it up? but I,m off the road til I get something to suit.
