wanted to get your opinion on the following,
i need to replace my PAS pump on my 1.8t as it is making a horrible noise as discussed before (i have already checked all the other parts that could cause the noise and had it confirmed by a VAG specialist that its the pump), i have a recon pump to fit and went to fit it today and found that getting the car into service position is a real pain, but the gap at the front is too small to get tools in without doing this. Has anyone managed to change theirs without service position? maybe by removing the fan to provide a bit more room?
If not, can anyone find me a step by step guide, preferably with pictures for getting into service position for a B6, I cant find one anywhere!
