    Well its an absolute doddle to change on an A3 1.8T. I did mine myself and only needed a flat blade screwdriver for the jubilee clips. What car & engine are you doing it on ?

    Its very easy to change. But getting to it is a *****. You can do it without removing the bumper but it is extremely tight. Best way is to remove the bumper. Then its just 3 bolts, unclip, and your done.

    It's the FWD, but what i've heard it 3 screws. got a bit confused as the forge is a vacuum valve couldnt work out where the extra hoses were supposed to go.
