Is this on the 1.6 Tu engine?, if so they can be adjusted -best looking in a haynes manual, there is no adjustment on the Gti-6 engine

I think your assumption of it being the tu is right as his user name is 1.6306 Big grin

If it is the tu then +1 to what you said.

Same as an old a-series engine - undo the 13mm locknut on the adjusters, and then adjust them using a screwdriver until the clearance is right.

Piece 'o p*ss, 30 minute job if that.

have you got to rotate the crankshaft pulley to move the cylinders and do the valves in their firing order or can i do them all in one go?
and how do you tell when the cylinder is up far enough to adjust the valve

thanks for reply

To be honest if I where you I would take the car to a garage to get it done, they would only charge labour of one to two hours, its not a hard job, but like anything if you have not done one before then you could struggle, unless you read and understand how to do it by reading the section in the haynes manual,
