insert clever title here
Interesting theory. I'll have to take a look at similar tabs elsewhere on the car. One thing to note though is that in each place, only one of the two locking tabs has been bent over. Why not bend both for twice the security?codymac said:I think you guys are reading the paint marks wrong.
Two marks - one for torque and one for "yeah, I hammered the tab over."
In all fairness, there's one thing I can't rule out - there's a possibility that, when I took the car in for its 1k service, the tech bent the tab away, torqued that bolt, and bent the tab back. The only scenario I see a tech actually doing this, though, is if they notice the bolt has loosened already. Otherwise, if the green line is all lined up, why mess with it?
