Part MN10PC - 10 PC Triple Square Bit Set in Blow-Molded Case M4-M18

images/products/cat05/mn10pc.JPG(Also known as 12 point and spline bits)

This kit is specifically designed for your European automobile.  We include all 9 known sizes of triple square bit (M4, M5, M6, M8, M10, M12, M14, M16 and M18) PLUS an extra long M10 for inner CV bolt access.  To keep them affordable, we use 3 sizes of friction bases.  M4 & M5 have a 1/4" drive chrome base. M6 & M8 have a 3/8" drive chrome base. M10 and larger have a 1/2" drive chrome base. The money saved on all those chrome bases allows us to use the highest grades of steel for the bits.  The M4, 5, 6 & 8 are S2 tool steel.  The M10, 12 & 14 are SAE8660 tool steel.  The M16 and 18 are SAE6150 tool steel.  This set is NOT recommended for head bolt removal due to length and clearance issues.  This set is NOT impact tool rated.  Head bolt bits and impact-rated bits are sold separately below.

Wondering where all these sizes are used?  Check out:

(3) Insert the high strength pins to lock tool handle to the tool hub at the desired angle.

Standard 3/4" water (black or galvanized) pipe handle is not included and it does not need to be threaded. Tool should fit all 4 cylinder water-cooled VW®/Audi® in-line engines.

(Also known as triple square bits)

Set includes one 8 mm with a 3/8" drive base that is 55 mm overall length and 10 and 12 mm with a 1/2" drive base that are 160 mm overall length.

The 12 mm is most commonly used for 1.8 gas, all 4 cyl. diesel, all 4 cyl TDI  and VR6® head bolts. The newer MKIV (A4)chassis cars require the 12 mm on the steering wheel center bolt.

Note: Many 1.8T, 2.0, V6 and V8 gas engines require a special 6 spline bit - see comments under P/N 18TKIT

Top quality Metalnerd® brand made from S2 tool steel. Note: Also sold separately below, however, we are not responsible for the partial application guide above and your ordering the wrong size. When in doubt - order the set and save $4 and possibly a headache.
