I'm trying to replace the cv axles on my 97 jetta gl, but I'm having trouble taking out the bolts on the inner joint. Has anybody had a similar problem? I don't know what kind of bit to use on them, I tried hex bits and star bits but none of them work! It's breaking my head any advice? Anyone?

if your talking about the bolts that are on the inner side of the axle that your cant get to, put the car in neutral and spin the axle until you can get to them and put it back in park so it doesnt move on you. i literally just did my passenger side yesterday lol

triple square is correct. i bought all the bolts and the bit from german auto parts. and i do believe the bentley says replace the bolts. i swapped to gti axles and i had to cut the head off of one of the bolts and it was a pita overall.
