    Default Loose bolts

    While changing my air filter today I noticed this bit had a lot of play in it.

    Managed to tighten them both up without too much trouble. Thought I would post this so that other members can check their cars. Not quite sure what it is for but there is nothing else I can see attached to it.
    This is on a 2.0T SRi

    Mines was loose when I got the car and I tightened it up with some locktight on the threads as it was coming loose all the time.

    It is the point for lifting the engine out as far as I'm aware.

    The two large hangers are, as Mark said, for lifting the engine. The bolt on your second pic is merely one of the ones that holds on that flat plate that the turbo heatshield attaches to - so not crucial.

    The other week, when routing around my engine diagnosing my turbo boost issue (just about to post) I noticed that one of the bolts for the engine hanger on the left was missing, so the hanger had flopped to one side. I simply got a new one from Vx.
