View Full Version : quick TT question...

05-17-2005, 03:54 PM
I have been a little bit ******ed lately, I took my handles off of my TT to repaint them and I wasn't really paying attention to the order that they go back on. I assembled them this way (see photos) which seemed to be the most logical way, and really the only way that it would go back together. Well, now every so often those pins will get stuck in the neutral locks. Take a look at the photo and tell me if I put them together in the right order, I seem to think not, but maybe others of you are having this problem too?

I don't have the same mower, but are the cotter pins supposed to go on the other side of the locks? I believe they do on my mowers, but I could easily be wrong... ;)

they won't fit on the other side, I have tried... Does anyone have any photos they could post?

I took pictures but they didn't come out. You do have them back together correctly and the pin is in the right place.

I would never take apart an Audi TT. Leave it to a trained mechanic ;)

JKoopers- Thanks for the pics. Do you ever have problems with the pins getting stuck in the neutral locks? I hate it when this happens, I'll try to start moving and let go of the handles, then I realize one is stuck. I even got tossed off my mower once when I wasn't paying attention. I never had/noticed this problem until I took em apart, I think I am going to try some bigger pins...

Mine lock up all the time, I've long since gotten used to having my thumbs on the tops of the locks, especially when turning.

mine never does that but maybe you should tighten the locks down so its harder to move them .
