Bit of advise needed please.
I'm doing a cambelt change on my GTi6 atm. Have got to the point where I need to undo the 18mm bolt on each of the cam gears. The only way I can see to hold them is by using the locating pins. There might be a hex cast into the cams themselves like Mi16's have, but didn't really want to disturb the covers.
I cant find a torque figure for these bolts either or whether they're threadlocked, but suspect it to be around 40Nm (30 ft lbs), so should I swing a spanner on the bolts & hope for the best? The pin engagement into the head is only around 8mm.
