Yeah 20 mins, 15 if you're quick.

Its a shit job to do, main problem is getting the torx bolts out from underneath as there is fuck all room. I hope I never do one again in my life.

lol it may be possible on a brand new engine or similar but in reality you have to be dreaming to think its as easy as that

edit looking at joes comment maybe i should have another gung ho go then, altho the thought of having to do another one makes me cringe

A good mates on the armed forces and based down south (kent)! He only drives home at the weekend on the motorway so you would think his wouldnt get cloggged up at all (its the astra sport hatch 1.9 cdti)...his car has done 30k! He has had to take it off, clean it all (it went into limb mode), then after a few thousand miles it did it again and he had to replace it. Very poor!
