    G60 owners ...please read this.

    I know this has been brought up in the past but this happened to a customer of mine today whist on idle outside the workshop...
    luckly i fixed it for him woth no problems but it could of quite easilly become a very expensive bolt had he been doing 80 on the motorway when it decided to break...
    Please replace your crank bolts with one from a dx engine any problems i will supply and fit for cost just so this dosent happen outside our workshop again..

    For those of us who're completely stupid the crank bolt would be the one that keeps the crank pulley timed, right?

    Yes this is the main crank pulley bolt which holds the crank pulley onto the crank and in which the cam belt runs around hence not a good thing to break on you.

    I will post prt numbers up but im sure there on here allready if you use the search...
