All bolts on running gear components with bonded rubber bushes
may be tightened only when the component is in the unladen po‐
sition (normal position).
Bonded rubber bushes can be twisted only to a limited extent.
Axle components with bonded rubber bushes must therefore be
brought to a position equivalent to the unladen (normal) position
before being tightened.
Otherwise, the bonded rubber bush would be subject to torsion
loading, shortening its service life.
To simulate this position on the lifting platform, raise the axle on
one side using the engine and gearbox jack -V.A.G 1383 A- and
support -T10149- .
