    I thought it's right up on top - certainly my replacement one on my 2007 S3 is easily reachable between the engine block & battery / CAI area and the original one that's cable tied out of the way is right next to it & easily accessible.

    Maybe it's moved on newer cars, but mine wouldn't need a ramp to change it fella...

    The 2.0tfsi from the Gti is at the bottom and as far as I am lead to believe it is a ******** to replace

    THANKS FOR THE HELP. I think i'll have another go an as you say remove the wheel an maybe some off the plastic trim and see if an extension will do the trick.

    As Antmax7 mentioned you can do it by removing the driver side wheel, you don't need to take any plastic guards off. You really need a 1/4'' rachet with some extensions on it with a swivelley (sp) on the end.

    All 3 bolts can be accessed without too much issues, i did mine a couple of months ago on the driveway, took about 20mins in total. If you are close to me then i am more than willing to give you a hand doing it.
