  6. Lifting the cam chain tensioner and cam?

    B5 Garage
    I'm elbow deep in replacing the cam chain tensioner gasket on my 2004 AWM engine and have hit a major sticking point. I attempted to replace the gasket WITHOUT removing the intake cam but everything I have done has only allowed me to wiggle the tensioner and lift maybe less than 1 mm. The...
