Also on a Tdi a gearbox mount has to be removed to enable access to a sump bolt so it will require a support while the job is being carried out. V8s require the Y pipe and cross member removed.

It does? damn hadn't noticed when I weighed the job up. On the V8 the hardest bit is splitting the sports pipe.

just be careful with the torque setting on the sump, too easy to strip the bolts. I was tempted to conevrt to studs last time. Also the rubber gasket is a faff to keep in place.

Before you do it though have a look at Ashcroft's website regarding changing oil. Often disturbing the oil in a neglected gearbox makes things worse!
