    Try and hire them if you can, genuine ones cost a fortune and unless you're going to use them lots not really worth buying. Also have a look on ebay as sometimes they crop up.

    if you havent done 1 b4 i realy wouldnt advise doing it UNLESS you have a mate that knows what hes doin to show you
    i know you got to learn but it could end up costing you more in the long run

    Ive not done one on a tdi before but have done a petrol, everything i have read does seem to make sense and looks pretty easy to follow, when i saw it done on a tdi, it was done without any special tools, ( i.e. No camshaft lock tool, just tipex lol) seemed fine,


    Where can it be hired from??
