    Coul you not get a haynes manual too. They should suit the problem perfectly as they tell you nothing useful bar rebuilding an engine.

    Re: 1.8 turbo

    Getting the sump off of the audi 1.8T engines is very hard and requires removing the front subframe and/or lifting the engine out of the bay slightly (a few centimeters is all). That's why garages charge so much. It's not the parts, it's just a really hard job to do. This might help you understand a bit more.

    Let us know how you get on!

    I had to replace my oil pump about a year ago, it cost me $580 USD. The dealer wanted upwards of $800 and another shop wanted $750. IIRC, the actual part I found for only a little over $100. It's the labor that costs on this job.

    Sorry mate, wish I had better news for ya [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Mike, wouldn't it be better to take the engine out and check all the bearings?
