    Heads up on this.....I have not done mine, though I have the parts sitting gathering dust......there's a metal gasket on the sump 06B103307C which you might need if it's removed.....and if you are going to all that effort you may as well replace the filter / pipe attachment 06F115251B which could well do with replacing....don't think they were too expensive if memory serves me right.

    Be interested to know how you get on and what condition the strainer was in. I understood that the 2.0's were better than the 1.8's for sludge pickup but I wanted to this as a precautionary measure too.

    Good Luck

    tks mate,it was late today when i got started so i didn't get a chance to take off the sump,looks like someone all ready had it off, i could see they used gasket sealer on it so with a bit of luck it was done all ready but will get it off next service to make sure.

    The pickup was part of the oil pump on mine. So changed the pump as it was on 92k and had been on long service. Surprisingly my mate said it wasn't to bad. Certainly upped the pressure a bit I think as my chain doesn't grate on startup anymore thank god. Mine was also sealant rather than a gasket
