Hi, I've seen several posts but there wasn't any that addressed my question as I expected. So I'm going to place this post as detailed as possible and hope that someone out there may help me.
I have a Audi A4 Quattro from 1998 V6 2.8L manual, since I got the car the left rear wheel bearing is messed up (drivers side).
I bought a new one (rear wheel bearing kit) at ecs however when I was trying to replace it I got a major issue with the eccentric bolt. It simply doesn't come out. It's the one on the picture below.

Please refer to the next image as a guidance for the part I'm talking about at this location
Ok, I was able to unscrew the locking nut and remove it also I was able to remove the eccentric washer (I marked it before doing so).
After this there was no way I could remove the eccentric bolt, I tried hammering it out, air drill, basically everything I could remember of.
The status at this point is, the bolt rotates but doesn't come out the thread is only at the bottom where the locking nut is so I don't know what is going on.
So, bottom line is: How do I take the bolt out? Can I cut it? And if I do, how do I know if it is going to come out? I mean it might be stuck in the middle (that might be the current issue) and will not come out.
Any help is highly appreciated.
Thank you very much.
