Looking into replacing TB & WP, what sort of time should I expect for first attempt, have been gas mechanic for many years. Reviewed Part 1 (nice job) am a bit hesitant on tools required for body parts removal. Flat Rate looks to be around 5.5 hrs.

It's really quite easy since you are an experienced mechanic. You just remove the bumper and use the tools or metric bolts to support the radiator support (lock carrier). I rent the tools upon request.

FYI, if you don't know about the balance shaft problem, check out this FAQ article: http://www.myturbodiesel.com/1000q/b5/oil-pump-failure-passat-tdi.htm , if it fails it's too late for the cheap (relatively) repair. Also, post moved to mk4 section.
