    Looking for an equivalent to the prescribed Arexons product for the damper fastening screw when doing a timing belt service. Looks to be a Euro product that has very little availability in the US. Any word on what others have used and if there is a Loctite equivalent product? Much appreciate any feedback and what others have used successfully.

    Bonus question: Shell Helix 5w40 seems to no longer be in production, my plan is to go with Mobil 1 when I replace engine oil as that's got a great film strength and same weight. What have others used?

    This is for a 2006 612 and a 2001 456.

    There's already a ton of info on the engine oil debate across the forum so no need for the bonus question unless you're so inclined!

    Thank you! I'll go with 242 and hope the previous person didn't go with 271 :)

    Appreciate it!
