Any info and pictures of the removal process of the oil pump and how clean u want the pan to be and/or and tricks to prevent it from happening again soon or maybe a bigger pick up tube screen? thank you very much.
any other questions . just ask . this is a big job not complicated but if you do the pump it be best to do timing belt and water pump thermostat at the same time
Which engine does it have?
1.8 Turbo AWM and the motor sits normal not transverse or trans-axel whatever it is when front wheel drive cars have the motor sitting sideways.
Volkswagen does not provide any information for this.
