Have read about all the failures with the original bolt and washers. But have there been any bolt failures with the updated bolt & slippery washer kit?
Short on time so am considering lapping & using loctite on the outer taper for now.

Side note - be sure to check the CVT inlet filter, mine had sand, leaves, grass after 2 hours.

Someone posted on here that yes, there has been a failure with the updated setup. I would recommend against lapping and Loctiting. If you do, be sure and get a new bolt!

I didn't shear the bolt, it backed out and tore a bunch of stuff up. All those washers and that bolt bouncing around in the case caused some havoc.

Why not lap & loctite? (Outer taper not the bolt).

mine goes on to the dealer friday morning for the recall bolt. I will be there along side the tech and will take measurements and pictures. I will not be able to beat on it for a couple of weeks to see if it holds up, but when i get to Glamis march 21st i will beat on it in the dunes and see what happens.

Are you guys having the recall bolt installed even if your VIN does not come up on the recall?

Mine didn't have a recall, but I just couldn't wait to see "IF", so I'm upgarding the primary to a CVTech from Airdam.

I tried it and it didn't work. I think that when the outer primary half starts to slip, it heats up the Loctite and it then becomes a lubricant.
Good point, had not thought about the loctite failing then acting as a lube.

A friend of mine had his bolt break at GlamisFans last weekend. His was done by the dealer right after he bought it. Had to get towed back by a XP. Sill waiting for parts to fix his car and they were having problems getting what was left of the bolt out.
