    Needs the tool to undo the bolt in the middle of the drive flange (drivers side)... essentially a really long allen key... this needs to be removed to allow you to remove the bevel box...

    Looks like this...

    Or make your own....6mm i think it is...
    I would not have thought you would need to split it as it all slides past the engine...just, but it will be heavy

    It does slide to a point but its an arse... it catches the end of the block so you have to jostle it past... not that easy to do when the thing weighs so much... Was bad enough with 2 people and a lift ramp...

    As Dave says, its 6mm and you could make one from a long 6mm or some steel tube/bar with a bit of 6mm allen key welded on the end maybe... either way its easier to get the box off and back on again with the bevel box removed...

    the hole is about 20mm in diameter and it needs to be a good 12" long

    I got my box out leaving the transfer box in place. Was a PITA to refit the box again, but can be done with a lot of swearing. Makes taking the gearbox out easier.

    The tool can be had at the dealers for around £9. Its VAG tool 1669.

    Good luck.
