So what exactly went wrong? I have done this job a few times before (not on a VW) and watched the DAP guys video. He uses an impact on that nut....of course mine is a little dewalt battery and he had air tools. I guess I'm just trying to figure out what broke.
DAP literally gives the worst advice in the industry.Nailed it. If you torqued it without spring compressors on or used an impact your odds of this happening are about 100x worse
Dealer techs cut corners and zing those nuts off and on to save 2 minutes.
In doing so the strut shaft spins and you literally have no clue how much, if any torque was applied.
So now you’re driving around with a loose strut top nut and the mount is moving where it shouldn’t be, causing noise. Eventually it’ll go from a squeak to a rattle as the mount beats itself to death
