    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Working on getting the head off of my 1.8L and got stuck at the three 17mm bolts atop the exhaust manifold. The inner one has less vertical room to get a socket on - all mine are too long. Is there a good tool for this bolt? Does anyone make a short socket with a swivel built in? Thanks
