Sump Removal Problem
« on: 18 January 2021, 11:04 »
Does anyone know anything about problems removing the sump on a Golf TDi 1.9? My garage have just called and said two of the bolts have sheared the where they screw in to and to replace that part they'll now have to remove the gearbox. I don't know what to make of what they're sayng to be honest. Any help anyone?

I know this is late notice lol, but there are 3 bolts between the engine and gearbox which are off centre. You need a low profile wobble head socket or a good quality ball head allen to get to them. I'm guessing these were the ones they had trouble with? If they need to drill them than yes the gearbox will need to be removed....
