      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.

      Just to follow up on this - So initially I tried using a brake caliper reset tool rigged up to a 3/8 ratchet adapter. It was the same size/dimension as needed. Didn't work. Tried whacking it with a hammer & screwdriver (as advised to) to get it to budge. Nothing. Plus it was slightly rounding out the hole. Doesn't seem like a good idea. Ended up buying the appropriate removal tool for this as well as popping off the timing cover so could use a 17mm wrench and hold the camshaft in place. A few tries later and I got it.
      The "appropriate" tool and the brake caliper tool were virtually the exact same so not real sure why that made a difference. This ended up being quite a bit harder (more like a pain in the ass) than everyone made it out to be.
      It did fix the P0011 'camshaft timing over advanced' problem so that's good.

      Question: N205 valve, intake cam control valve, VVT solenoid -- all the same part (as your pic looks like pics of the others)? I am royally confused and just looking for some clarity here. I don't do any work myself, and was a VW owners for life until my current vehicle (2012 Audi A4Q 2.0TFSI EA888-G2 6M). TIA!

      Basically yes.
      The valve controls the variable valve timing (VVT) AKA N205 valve (insider VW/factory speak?) AKA intake cam valve cuz it does correlate to/basically goes inside the intake cam.
      Shopping around was tricky cuz of all the various names as each place seems different, Best of luck.
      Also try part # 06H109257A that should take a bit of guesswork out.

      Thank you very much! My mechanic called it an intake cam control valve on the receipt (06H109257C), but going around to different auto parts sites, as well as forums, I've heard it called all three, and at first thought they were different, until I started looking at pictures. I saw a thing on youtube (RE: Audi/VW Timing) calling it a VVT solenoid, which is what I was calling it to my mechanic, so I think that confused the both of us.

      Hoping someone has some ideas what I can replace next on my audi to get the damn light to go off (and, I suppose, more importantly, fix the problem ).
