I've been in the industry for 6+ years now but never have I worked on a VW & or many diesels for that matter. I jumped into a water pump > timing belt job that was way easier to do than trying to access it. WTF VW LOL, Do I really have to practically remove the front clip for this... WoW, inconvenient. LOL especially when your new to all the clip/bolt/nut locations on VW's. All is well though, Im gettin ready to put her back together.
