I have a 2008 v6 that needs fuel injector replaced. I want to replace all of them. Shop's charging me an arm and a leg and I can't afford it at the moment. I figured I could prob do it myself with a little guidance, but I can't find any post that might talk me through. Is there anyone that can send me a link that might be able to help me?

I have the 2.0T with direct fuel injection, does the 3.6 have direct fuel injection or does it have a fuel rail?
it has a fuel rail. i found how to replace them just need to know how to place bumper in service position.
similar to B5.5 pretty sure, go to information base in search section and there is some info, basically remove front wheels for access, take out inner fender liner...I take it all out as trying to flip it back is not worth trouble ,remove plastic grille and bumper cover and disconnect and lamp/light wires,then insert a couple of ???8mm threaded rods or equivelent into bolt holes that hold on structural bumper, once all bolts removed you slide it forward as far as possible as air cond. hos,coolant hose and tranny hose are still attached , this is for the B5.5 as my 08 is the 4 cyl. transverse mounted engine but yours I believe is front to back like the 2.8 engines ,am I correct on that assumption? hope this helps. You might also check "VW Vortex" forum......have had my B6 about 6 months but B5s and B5.5s 15 years
thanks for the info. I finally was able to remove bumper cover to find out that someone (prob previous owner) broke bumper cover attempting to remove it. There are two nuts you have to remove on passenger side. The bolts are almost impossible to see since they are behind wiper fluid reservoir. The top nut is impossible to access without removing reservoir. I didn’t remove it since bumper cover fell because it was previously broken (they glued it back on lol). It took me a long time to figure out where the nuts were. On driver side they are fairly easy to access.
