    thinks its been going for a while but now the engine is rocking like crazy and you can push it from side to side by hand. Anyone had them done and how much would I be looking at? Also I have noticed there seems to be a small amount of oil around the base of where the oil filler is situated on the rocker cover. Its never been there before.

    have just done one on my 2.5tdi. it cost £105 inc vat. i fitted it myself so all in 105. never tried one of these yet but turned out pretty easy.
