      So I just stepped into the 2.0T world from VR6's - I'm trying to change the N205 valve and am having zero luck. I've done extensive searching and everyone makes it sounds easy. I've got the soleniod or whatever out of the way, the indentations for the valve are right there.
      I have the equivalent of the VW T10352 tool, got it on the valve. I know it's reverse threaded (righty-loosey) but when I go to crank down (pretty damn hard too) the entire engine rotates like I'm turning the crankshaft.
      What''s up with that?? It's only supposed to be 25Nm of torque. Am I missing a crucial step?
      Thanks ahead of time.

      Yes EA888. I just removed mine the other day without the tool. Took a large flat screwdriver and put the edge in the left side hole. Smack the screwdriver to shock the bolts lose. Obviously pushing the bolt counterclockwise. Once it pops lose I was able to turn it out by hand.

      Ok, I was wondering if needed to do some kind of shock to break the seal or whatever. I'll give that a try. It didn't chip/crack the part itself? We are talking this guy right?

      Yep that's it. Since you have the tool you might try an impact gun on it.

      Maybe you can use a counterhold on the crank shft so the engine doesn't turn. I had to do that when I took off the water pump belt pulley bolt.
