    First project 1996 b5 A4 saloon build

    Make sure the PCV system is working properly before you replace the gasket. I didn’t and had to replace it twice! Also get a cheap eBay cable and the free version of VCDS. Then you can scan for codes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Rocker cover and.cam Shaft seal leak?

    I used this video. It isn’t too bad. I did it the slow but correct way by taking the cam shaft out. Wasn’t too bad. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    1998 Avant rear strut removal

    I had the same problem. I had only raised one wheel on an axle stand. When I raised both rear wheels and REALLY pryed on the hub it moved down far enough to wiggle the spring/shock out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
