Hello, My name is Jonathan. This is my first post on this forum and from reading so far i believe this is going to be a very useful website.

I currently own a 2006 Jetta w/ dsg. To date I have put a new dmf in the car, 2 wheel bearings and had someone put a timing belt in it for me. Now the cam is gone and i have decided to replace it myself.
I am going to be using a BEW kit from a known vendor (yes i know i have a BRM) in hopes that the BEW cam will last longer.
If anyone has any hints/tips/tricks it would be appreciated.

Thanks, Jonathan

It may but in my case I just used thicker oil and will see what happens. If New Brunswick is in Canada I can't rent the tools due to shipping from the US sorry!

Franko6 suggested some break in additive. IMHO, the toughest part is making sure the cam isn't binding when you install it. The writeup says how to check.
