  1. Yes that is a good point and I have thought about this. Just hope that it is the right way according to the manual, if not then I don't know what to believe.
  2. I understand that life is often like this. And i had the opportunity to buy one of my dream cars, if you haven't seen it, that's why I had to sell it. So even though I didn't want to sell it, it was worth it.
  3. Thanks for the update was wondering how things were going since you have been quiet for a while. And now you are the only one with one of these Audis here as I had to sell mine. So glad there is still one of these here they are great cars. And great news about the writing job for those car magazines!
  4. I don't know as I am not familiar with that tool. So had to check it up. And threds are normal.
  5. I might try to get it loose but will wait until the second part has arrived. Because if I destroy this and the other one I have bought should turn out to be the wrong part, then I have a big problem as this part is not something that is easy to find and I was lucky to find another one. But these are good suggestions you have here.
  6. It's a good idea, but the bolt is so tight that this probably won't work. And there is a high probability that the threads are broken. So I bought another one.
  7. Yes, this is bad luck. And I have thought about it and it is probably as you say that the threds are damaged, this is perhaps due to the fact that it has been mounted incorrectly. And the bolt is a special bolt and it is probably not possible to get it out without destroying it. So I've been looking for this part and managed to find a complete one for sale in Greece that wasn't expensive so I bought it. So that should fix this.
  8. Visited the local garage today and don't know what's wrong but he wasn't as helpful and nice as he used to be. So they couldn't or possibly wouldn't help. So I have to figure this out myself. The bolt is 6 mm as I have said and a 6 mm socket just slips and does not get hold of the bolt head. I have tried other sockets, also 5.5 mm, but none of them fit. I have also had to grind down the outside of the socket to get it on the bolt head because it is tight. So I think I'll have to see if I can find some tool I can buy that can loosen it. But attaching pictures of the bolt in case anyone has any suggestions and ideas.

  10. Got a problem with the bolt for the cam now. I can't get it loose. I had it out yesterday when I was cleaning and it was hard to get out then but I screwed it in without a problem and didn't tighten it too hard. But now it is impossible to get out and this is made worse by the fact that the bolt is 6mm and it is tight there. I'm going into civilization tomorrow so will take this to the local garage and see if they can help as I'm out of ideas.
  11. Thanks. This is a very good idea and I have thought about this so I will do this. To be honest I'm not very comfortable messing with a diesel pump so the fear of blowing up the engine has been in the back of my mind the whole time.
  12. Thank you both. And it's possible that's why there was a hose there. And it is possible to put in the bolt on both sides of the cam. So tomorrow, unless someone says otherwise, i will turn the cam to the right way and then start the engine and see what happens. I am excited to see what will happen then.
  13. One of my dream vans has come up for sale here and would make a perfect camper. 1998 Iveco Daily 4x4 123,000 km 1668 pounds https://www.finn.no/car/used/ad.html?finnkode=275045207
  14. Thanks. This is exactly what I think the part is mounted upside down. And I think you're right here, but it will be interesting to hear what others think also.
