u don't need any air tools
1st remove the axle nuts with a 30mm socket
2nd you put the car on jack stands
3rd You pull apart the entire brake assembly
4th remove the 3 bolts holding on lower ball joint (don't remove strut from steering knuckle it will mess up the alignment of the vehicle)
5th now you can loosen the six axle bolt useing a 8mm triple square drive ( 12 point not the 6 point torx!!)
6th now you pull down the control arm and remove the axle

The parts aren't really that expensive, it's the labor these places charge an hour. Call around and see who can do it the cheapest, unless you want to do it your self.

Hi Paul, Most of these gearboxes were almost identical for vw during the those years, some manuals are available free from this site
Hope it will help you out.
