    Hi tried installing new clutch to my 2007 s3 loosens the transfer box so I could rotate it but the transfer box wouldn't seperate from the gearbox so put it all back together. After some research there's a bolt down the drive flange vag tool 1669 can anybody confirm this is correct?? Any help appreciated thanks.

    There is indeed a bolt down the centre of the transfer box. You need a long 1/4 inch bar and I think the bolt has a 6mm Allen key head on it

    Timing chains and tensioners. Head bolts and the illusive T10068A tool.
    I already purchased the head gasket and various other seals. So I just need the tool mentioned above and crankshaft seal and I'm ready to go!! :)

    Cheers Alex. I will be posting pics of the work (and no doubt a pic of the car on a low loader going to the garage when I fooked it up lol)

    then hopefully I can concentrate on improving the car rather than just makin it work.
    Adjustable ARB blades n suspension would be nice...... Oh and some rotors
