Does anyone know if the Valve Cover gasket for 01 A4 1.8T is the same as the gasket on 01 VW Jetta 1.8T?

Also, on the front (not top) of the Valve Cover there is a black plastic cover the covers the cam shaft positioning sensor etc. does anyone know if there is a trick to taking that off?

Thanks,
Mark

Yes the valve cover gaskets are the same part #.

I take it you are talking about the timing cover?

Unclip the two hoses that run in front of it, unclip the two metal clips that secure the cover in place, and pull out.

Yup that's the one. Where are the two clips? I didn't see any clips. I did unclip the two hoses, but it wouldn't slide out.

Thanks for responding.

Can you tell me where the 2 clips holding it in place are located?
