    Hi Guys,

    Im going to change the cam chain and tensioner on my S3 (BHZ engine) on saturday and am struggling to find a gasket to go between the cylinder head and cam chain tensioner, I went to TPS and they couldnt find it either. Is it that there is no gasket and you just use sealer instead?

    See below for a picture of the back of the tensioner.

    Someone that has done this job would be a real help!

    Thanks

    Nothing shown other than the gasket around the end cap, there is a tube of sealant listed suspiciously close by though.
