Thank you for the reply Randy!
I was there when the bolt was tightened, but I do not recall a torque wrench being used, and if it indeed needs to be tightened to around 200ft/lbs, then I would think that a 2-3 foot pipe would have come in handy to reach that spec. (I didn't see that either)
Well things where not ruined as much as the last time, however those two little round cylindrical pieces of steel are (of course) not available from the dealer until tomorrow. I will mention the specified torque, and see if he still wants to go with lock-tite, or a big helper bar to get it to the specified tightness.
ps: they don't do exorcisms on cars, although if this happens again...I might need one.
