Lupo/polo driveshaft nut size

Post by calvinw1 » Wed Jul 20, 2016 11:50 pm

Hello, I've just put an AFH engine in my Lupo and have used one of the driveshafts as well. Fits perfectly, no issues there, but the outer nut on the hub doesn't tighten past half way through the nut. I have tried on 4 polo driveshafts now and same issue on all of them. Works perfectly on the Lupo one.

I have looked and apparently both are M20x1.5 (although confirmation would be great)is anyone aware of any differences? I understood that they were interchangeable

Thanks a lot.

Have you got the nut that matches the polo driveshaft? Sounds like the pitching is wrong

Sadly not.... It's weird that the part for both lists them as being M20x1.5 though. Threads certainly look the same as well.

Quite confused with it really! Thinking maybe get a die nut on the thread in case they are damaged...

Just checked ETKA. All m20x1.5 apart from the auto gearbox ones which are m16x1.5
