    Cam adjuster Gasket, Cam Cover Paint (Pics)

    Hi All,

    I have a slight leak from the cam adjuster gasket, so I thought I would replace it while i'm there might as well do the cam cover gasket. Anyway last night I managed to get the cam cover off give it a good clean up and powder coated it black.

    but i'm stuck,

    How do I get to the cam adjuster gasket is there a easy way of doing it. Elsawin wants me to start moving the timing belt so the vavles are in a certain position then move the cams in to another position and remove the chain and lift the assembly out. can I do this with out removing the chain.....

    Also do you think i should put a coat of Clear Lacquer on top of the powder coat for easy of cleaning later on?

    any help will be great. here are some pics so far more to come.

    I take it you mean the VVT gasket? If it is that, you need to get hold of VAG Tool 3366, this tool will allow you to gently lift the metal gasket and half moon gasket and replace them (it gives you about 5-7mm to play with!). Tool is available to buy from TPS or here: Laser 4581 VAG Vw Audi Seat Camshaft Retaining Tool

    The gaskets look like:
    Part no: 058 198 217

    I can't fine the 'How To' on it at the minute but do a quick search for "VVT Tensioner" and I'm sure you will come across it...

    They all have them mate, it sits under the timing chain tensioner. The non VVT models still have the tensioner, just a different type. They still have the gasket.

    I wish I could help you there mate, unfortunately I don't have a clue about the non VVT engines (AGU?). I'm sure somebody else will have the right info for you and will post here soon....

    Thinking about it, the cam chain will always be there to connect the two cam together (whether the VVT unit is or not) so I would imagine that the gaskets would also be in place... again, I'm only guessing that this is the case.

    If you have any problems report back and let us know. I have not long ago changed my VVT unit so pretty familiar with what you should do.

    F~##*%$$%~#. Not happy.
    Right changing the the VVT Gasket was really easy I just undone the 4 x T30 torx screws highlighted in red. Then just lift the hole unit up about 2cm which gives you enough room to remove and replace the Gasket. don't forget to put a little sealant on the blue areas on the gasket.

    All done tighting the the nuts for the cam cover doing the last one and snap the hole nut and stud is in my hand. B***cks.
    What annoys me is I was using a torque wrench to the correct setting of 10nm. another trip to stealers for a new stud and nut....

    Mate you have the worse luck with cars!

    Hope it's not too much of a pain to get the stud out. This is why I hate tackling any jobs like this.
