im about to pull the lump out of my 2000 S3 APY as its knackered. In its place will be a 1.9 GT30 powered lump. However having only played with mostly mk2 golfs and once breaking a Leon Cupra im lacking in experience (however an abundance of enthusiasm!!) with regards to engine removal on these newer breed motors. However im quite conversant with 20v lumps having played with them in my old mk2 golf.
I am assuming the front end comes off to enable me to perhaps wheel the lump out? Or does it come out from the top with an engine crane?
Ive read the audi-tech on dropping it from the bottom but that is no good for me as even though ive got a decent little workshop with jacks/stands/crane/tools, a ramp is one thing i dont have!
Any hints/tips/advice will be appreciated. This isnt happening til i get back from my hols in a few weeks but im just gathering info so im ready.
