    Hi i have a sline b6 avant 1.8 t 190. Have a oil leak to the rear of the of engine towards bulk head. Not rocker cover as its a little bit lower. Is this an easy job? Whats the part numbers for genuine gaskets? I am confident in doing repairs but do i pay a garage? How long does this job take? I dont want to take of cam belt at the front. :think::redrs4: cheers neil.​

    with the correct tensioner tool, it can be compressed and enable enough space to change gaskets by sliding old one out and new one in over the dowel np
