    Cam Chain Tension Gasket, One for the Parts Department boys!!

    Hi Guys,

    Im going to change the cam chain and tensioner on my S3 (BHZ engine) on saturday and am struggling to find a gasket to go between the cylinder head and cam chain tensioner, I went to TPS and they couldnt find it either. Is it that there is no gasket and you just use sealer instead?

    See below for a picture of the back of the tensioner.

    Someone that has done this job would be a real help!

    Thanks

    Nothing shown other than the gasket around the end cap, there is a tube of sealant listed suspiciously close by though.
