    Actually, service position doesn't require removing the rad support. By threading long bolts into the frame horns, you can slide the rad support front on them and give some extra room to work without disconnecting any hoses. But it's easier to just remove it imo

    I used these...

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/M8x120mm-1-...!-1:rk:81:pf:0

    no balls on the end but did the job. Just need to be M8-1.25....longer the better. I'd say 120mm is the shortest you'd want....longer is better, but I've changed my timing belt twice and put my front end in service position probably 6 times using these and they worked.

    False.

    Service position is not removing the core support - that's just what most DIY'ers do. Actual service position is only sliding the core support forward about 6 inches. Dealers use special little sliders that screw into the frame rails, you can just use long bolts, or just have it rest barely on the edge of the snub mount. Either way it gives you much more clearance without having the drain and refill the coolant

    Correct.

    As for easier to remove, it depends on what job you're doing. For a timing belt or something, yeah, worth the effort to remove. If you're doing something small that requires extra room (not much of a 2.0T issue, but 3.2 & 4.2 definitely), then actual service position can be useful and quick

    Absolutely no reason to remove core support for a timing service. I do them on a monthly basis and service position is more than adequate. No reason to do more work than necessary, timing job is 2-4!hours depending on skill level.IMG_2944.JPG

    It's certainly not necessary but it does give a lot more room for activities. And the extra work is minimal at that point. I'm usually around the 3 hour mark myself and I prefer the extra space.

    Plus for anybody new to doing a timing service, the extra space and visibility will help a lot.

    Went to replace OEM Springs today. Right off the bat, rear camber bolt snapped. Won't come out. Now in the whole another $400 for rear control arms and $50 in bolts/hardware after I try to figure out how to get the rest of the camber bolts out since the bushing is just spinning inside the control arm along with the bolt. Then decided to try pressing on anyways and use my new Schwaben $200 Spring Compressor and the threads to tighten down the clamps on the compressor have mis-aligned threads, can't tighten down the clamps.

    Over working on cars.

    Replaced my PCV and valve cover gasket and painted the shitty yellowed cover of my Carbonio. Gasket was easier than anticipated, seemed like getting the hoses off the PCV without breaking them took longer than anything

    The stupid hose with the cloverleaf is impossible to get off without breaking one of the clips. Happened to me on both my b7s.

    who thought that was a good idea. I ended up taking my intake manifold off so I could disconnect the end on the oil filter housing.

    Dragged it. Very disappointing however. Did a 13.8 last year which I feel was not as good as I could of done. Tonight I only did 3 runs as my gas was on 0 miles and didnít want to risk running out of gas in the way home. Tonight best time was 14.7...

    No idea what happened. New red top coils, spark plugs, and GFB DV compared to last time. No other changes. I believe I was shifting much to late, but a full second slower?

    Time for a carbon clean with 117k miles. Who has done it themselves or is it worth it to pay $500 to have it done?

    Carbon clean will feel so much better you have no idea. Smoother idle, faster response no delay. And overall a better driving experience. Feels like new

    How hard of a job to do a carbon cleaning? If not I'm gonna have to go to the dealer - with a jar of Vaseline.

    Not too difficult, there is a good DIY floating around. I don't disconnect the battery, I just disconnect the cable off the alternator and wrap it in a rubber glove. Be sure to change the o-ring. Be patient, and don't snap the upper hose overflow bung off. Plan on about 2 hours.

    Yesterday did my first oil change. I planned to swap out the DV while I was under there and found that it was already a Rev D.



    then while under there I found this


    and this


    How easy is it to do a snub mount?

    Takes 10 minutes. Unbolt the snub bracket, unbolt the snub arm, they both come out super easy.

    Took my left rear caliper off and re-greased the back of the pads and new urea grease on the slide pins.

    No more annoying squealing. Thank goodness. Driving me crazy for ever now.
