my son will be doing his some time in the future, on his gtti. he had the head skimed+ thick copper gasket, but has a slight rattle after the rebuild. took the head of and you can see very faint marks on the head where the pistons are hitting the head. good luck:)

I was told by Autovaux that this could be done on the 2.0. I was enquiring about the same for a 1.6 but they didn't know for that one.

My understanding was that you can just drop the crank enough to get the top half of the bearing out and to slip in the new one. This could then just be done with the gearbox and flywheel etc in place.

I don't know how true this information is though.

Thanks Martin!:beer:

And Chris, i think in this too, because this i put the tread here about this. Because in my mind, i can slip the old bearing, and put new in place. But i remember, the bearings have a "lock", this lock will get impossible this, dont will slip.. :(
But thanks for this information Chris! :beer: :)

If its anything like the 1.6 crank (which i think it is). Then the 'lock' you mention is simply an off centred notch on on end of the half bearing. If you can drop the crank by abour 5-10mm I think you'd have enough space to get it out.

But having never taken a 2.0 to bits I dunno. :confused:

To do this the oil pump will have to be removed to gain access, it will also be difficult to replace the bearing next to the flywheel with gearbox still attached. you will have to replace the crank end oil seal for flywheel side also as this may begin to leak if not changed, so flywheel has to come off also.
