    Hi to all ,this weekend i replace the timing belt on my A3 TDI 2012 and i have search and every body said that to remove the engine mount is a big problem one of the 16mm bolts is a a position that is almost impossible to remove so what i did is to drill a hole , and i have some pictures with the location .
    with this hole it was a breeze to lose the 16mm bolt.

    Sure but now you have a hole! Make sure to paint over it to prevent rust.
