I've been reading some other forums and would agree with you that you don't need the engine out. Think I'll use a different garage and leave you r Kyber Pass alone. ;)

Nathanlee-miller - how did you change your cambelt? I was quoted something like 350 by a garage to change it because they said it was an "engine out" job.

Cheers

In Topic: Water in top of cylinder head

Got the replacement core plug (1.39), but couldn't remove the old one :angry: . Twisted out of shape the 1/2" extender bar I used, bought a stronger one and still couldn't budge it. Decided to buy some Evo-Stik Hard & Fast metal epoxy putty and pushed it into the hole and it appears to work. For your info if you ever need to try to remove these core plugs, you need a 15mm hex key and more musle than me.

After closer inspection coolant water is seeping up through the centre of what must be a core plug in the top of the cylinder head. It's a core plug with a 14mm-15mm hex centre. Hopefully I can extract and replace it?
