    Cool thanks for that.

    Gonna use this forum and a well known repair manual to attempt it.

    We will have a running engine at the end of it or a few bent bits.

    Any help is appreciated

    Best of luck Grover,

    It was a leap of faith when I did the cambelt on my 1.8t, when you've got the front panel off and are faced with a mess of bits and pieces it looks worse than it is.

    I would assume that the layout is similar-ish to petrol cars, the sticky which refers to "service mode" is well worth a read, there are some good photos to aid disassembly.

    Good luck, and enjoy!
