Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang here to help!!
Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail. Do not rate yet, just reply. Put yourself in my shoes, I can not see, smell, hear, feel or touch your car, nor do I know any history on it. So take into consideration I am doing my best based on what you tell me. Also understand fixing cars often requires sophisticated tools, that you may not own. So even if you can not do what is outlined in my answer, that does not mean my answer is wrong deserving to be rated negative.

please see attached installation guide

that will help you out!!

anything else?

if not.....

I try to be online 365 days a year.

I only earn a paycheck when a customer rates me Ok, Good, Excellent.

This rating is VERY IMPORTANT! Your rating compensates me on my time and my expertise on your issue!

If I have not addressed your original question to your liking yet, I hope you will reply and continue working with me, since your charged the full question value, regardless if you rate negative or not at all. If you rate me now, do not worry, you can still reply later to me.

I need to know how to take off the timing cover if i need to remove the motor mount. like where do i start?
Audi Mechanic: Wolfgang, Audi master tech replied 2 years ago

you will need an engine brace to hold the motor suspended when you remove the mount and the mount bracket

Which bolts do I have to remove to get the timing cover off?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I can't get the center crank bolt off any tips?
Audi Mechanic: Wolfgang, Audi master tech replied 2 years ago

timing belt still on and use 1/2 " impact gun . must be a good gun like ingersoll rand gun and at least 130 to 140 psi pressure!!

Okay I got it off. So can I get away with not replacing the crank gear? The teeth don't look warn and I don't want to go through the pain of putting a new one on if I don't have to. Are they the same gear?
Audi Mechanic: Wolfgang, Audi master tech replied 2 years ago

You mean the chain sprocket?

Ask Your Own Audi Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago

Audi Mechanic: Wolfgang, Audi master tech replied 2 years ago

I installed the pump and the car runs great now no more noise but the oil pressure light keeps coming on. I don't understand?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
im reading something about a housing
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
oil filter housing
Audi Mechanic: Wolfgang, Audi master tech replied 2 years ago

possibility there is a series of check valves in the oil filter housing with the lack of oil pressure may have damaged the valves. you may have to replace the assy and i would also replace the pressure switch!!

Ask Your Own Audi Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The oil pressure switch is the green swtich
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Right? Also should I replace it with the 1.8t assembly? I read that it was nessicary

will thickening the oil up help this issue temporarly?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
like i said ive driven the car with for 50 miles and the engine is fine and runs fine just the light comes on
Audi Mechanic: Wolfgang, Audi master tech replied 2 years ago

the only way to make sure is to have a manual gauge to check the pressure . most likely the light comes on at idle . with the conversion the 1.8t pump does not have the check valves like the 2.0t pump.

Ask Your Own Audi Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The light only comes on when the car is going over 25 mph the goes away at idle
Audi Mechanic: Wolfgang, Audi master tech replied 2 years ago

so the opposite . need to see with a gauge what is the pressure is over 25 mph
