    Hi, I have just joined the site, because it looked pretty good.
    Can anyone link me to a guide to changing the head gasket on a B5 1.9Tdi.
    I just need a quick read through before I start, Cam cap and head bolt torque settings etc.
    I have got all of the gaskets and bolts, the weather looks ok.
    As said a quick read up would be good before I start, or I'm just going to use the force, Starwars style.

    Many thanks

    I dont think ive ever seen a guide anywhere but looking at the link you have posted that looks as good as any even if the engine sits transverse.
    take a few photos and write a bit up im sure it would be good for future reference for anyone.

    where abouts are you located?

    Thanks for the torque settings..
    I'm in Bungay, Suffolk and the sun is shining...
    Fingers crossed that it stays that way.
