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

    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 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

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