Not had a proper look myself yet, but any special tools required for this job? Or pitfalls to avoid?

Oh bugger! That looks like fun :(

Any idea how far up they are? Is it the ball on the 8" extension you need or will the allen keys reach?

Am guessing they're M6 cap head bolts with the 5mm socket?

Well mission acomplished today [:)]

The warnings about the bolts are well founded! The material they are made of is similar to primula cheese spread! Managed to damage 2 or 3 elsewhere along the edge and not the infamous pair. I was lucky though, and found them 'less tight' than the others. I suspect the sump had been changed before and the previous spanner monkey knew the future risks! Phew!

I pm'd Chris about the tool he used as the vw T10058 tool description is a bit vague and quotes a 6mm figure. Glad to report back it was 5mm which i thought might be the case. So thanks mate and hope you got yours sorted
