Following VAG manual to pull engine from A6 (2.7t AJK), but won't be able to rotate crank to undo bolts as has cam belt failure.
Is there any advice from people who have done this before?
Can i just pull engine without undoing bolts, and leave TC on engine?

Don't want to cause myself more work, but can't see many options.
