    I'd been doing various bits of work on the track car before the 'Ring trip and found myself leafing through the chapters of Haynes manuals, often three, as they don't list the same data consistently. Add in a hybrid 02A and it means reaching for the Passat manual... so thought I'd compile it into a list to have on the wall on the garage.

    Posting it here in case anyone else can benefit.

    Limited usefulness for most, but handy for some. Mk2 Syncro/Rallye rear axle torque settings, from VW workshop manual:





    I have some more syncro-specific torque settings without pics, but how do I do tables?

    From VW workshop manual for Golf/Vento Syncro 1992 on, but presumably same for Rallye/G60 Syncro which came with the 02C:

    All for 02C 4wd cable-change gearbox:

    Transfer box to gearbox: 40Nm
    Transfer box C-shaped support to engine: 40Nm
    Transfer box C-shaped support to transfer box: 40Nm
    Transfer box strap-shaped support (both ends): 40Nm

    (Installing C-shaped transfer box-engine support without stressing:

    Screw in all bolts hand tight
    Tighten transfer box support-engine bolts to 8Nm
    Tighten transfer box support-transfer box bolts to 25Nm
    Tighten transfer box support-engine bolts to 40Nm
    Tighten transfer box support-transfer box bolts to 40Nm)

    Tripod transfer box-propshaft flange centre nut: 350Nm

    Viscous coupling centralising nut-rear diff input shaft: 45Nm

    Propshaft to viscous coupling: 60Nm (Higher than mk2 rod-change 020 syncro - different bolts?)
