 Sorry Steve but that is an incorrect statement. Valve seals can be replaced
on nearly any engine without removing the head. Nearly any includes all of
Audi's 5 holers. Replacing the valve guides does require head removal.....and
a machine shop.

 The proceedure for replacing the seals with the head still installed is in
the manual.
