    Hi all,

    I'm looking for some advice if possible.

    My B6 wagon broke down yesterday with the "low oil pressure" warning.

    I've been aware of the balance shaft problem since iv had the car (5 years) so I knew my day was coming with this :-/

    Anyway I've got the sump of today and the retaining clip where the hex key is situated but I cannot figure out how to get the hex key out. Can anyone advise?

    I plan to try a new hex key. Even if this gets me another year I'll be happy. My B6 is on 230k now and starting to show signs of tiredness.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I have the Gear driven balance shaft.
