    i'm wishing to install a new diverter valve on my 2.0t a3, is this something i can do myself?

    is there a guide somewhere that i may have overlooked?

    There's probably one on here somewhere but I know for a fact that there's a guide to fitting the Forge unit in the A3 section over at www.audiforums.com

    it can be done by yourself

    i did mine on the driveway.

    all you need to do is remove the drivers side wheel

    and you will be able to see the turbo and the diverter valve is on the side of it and is held on by 3 bolts. took me around an hour to do as it is quite awkward to get to, you'll need a good socket set!

    Remembering the 'egg yolk' thread, keep in mind that Robin has freakishly small hands!!
