    It doesn't have to come fully off, it just needs to come forward and is then supported. As this engine is an in-line engine, the belt is tight behind the radiator, hence the need to bring the front end forward. I've just bought mine and the timing belt will be due in march, so as a condition of sale, I got them to buy me the Audi kit, and I'll do it myself in March :yes:
