So just a PSA… if your having a clutch installed please advise your technician to please use the loctite that’s provided by the manufacturer or just any damn loctite!! One of the wises decisions I’ve ever mad is being my parts from FCP euro… first I had a dif explode on my and thanks to mfactory for replacing it but I got it back and two weeks later blew it up again. Somehow manage not to break the stock axels or driveshaft…. Anyway let me not get off topic!! So a shop I had my car at decided against using loctite on the flywheel bolts.. and the result is they all backed out.. one came out completely and jammed everything up and result it me messing up the flywheel and so
Show breaking the diff in the process.. don’t ask me cause I dont bloody know.. but moral of the story… use bloody loctite. If I knew how to add a video here I would.

Especially a shop. Good chance is your will never be the guy who has to back those bolts out in the future. Locktite away.

OP, I hope the shop makes this right. I would demand a loaner car.
