Hi All,

It looks like my head gasket is seeping around the inner-V so I'll have to
do the inevitable job soon. It's just oil so far and no obvious signs of an
internal leak (no performance problems, oil or bubbles in expansion tank,

I have a problem in that my Audi manual from Erwin has expired and they want
a whopping £279 for 30 days use to reactivate it. The last time I subscribed
two years ago, it was only £20 for a year so this has caught me out

I don't really want to go in blind and do a head gasket job. I know this
engine fairly  well, but not that well! Does anyone have procedural diagrams
available, or is there a site with such a thing? You can't get 'Bentley's'
covering this model of car in the UK as far as I'm aware.
