If you could gain access to the Chilton/Haynes repair manual that covers this SUV, the torque specs are listed at the back of the chapter on engine overhaul. These books can be purchased at Walmart or parts stores.
unfortunately the file size that we can share is severely limited. If I posted the diagrams they would be small an illegible. The good news is your local library will usually have a selection of repair manuals.
They can also have online subscriptions to alldata, which is a professional automotive resource that can be used for free. Typically you are charged for pages that you print.
Your local parts store will either have or can order you a chitons repair manual specific to your vehicle. It will have the diagrams you are looking for.
The last option I can think of is heading over to the autozone website. They may have wiring diagrams for your vehicle in the automotive repair section.
buy the book that specifies all torque settings trust me if you buy a 20 dollars book many headaches will go away,all cars have a specific manual that usualy comes with the vehicle,but car manuals are available at car parts stores ,even the computer is slow compared to the index of this book and it s specifications.on the lighter side I torqued mine at 30lbs
go by the size of the bolt shank the thicker the bolt the more the torque ,also use some form of locktite on them or contact adhesive will do ,if a 15mm head then about 65lb if 17mm then 75lb and 19 mm 85lb ,and dont forget the sticky stuff
Your best bet would be down at the auto parts store. Pick up a copy of a Haynes manual for your truck or a copy of Chiltons book for imports. Both should have everything you need to know to do the job. Hope this helps.
Not enough room here and not enough continuity here to step you through this; however:
1. You must obtain a motor service manual from an auto supply store, like AutoZone. The manual is not the general manual, it is a specific motor manual for all VW's. ($30). You can also copy the pages you need at the local Public Library (you have a card, right?) ($2)
2. You will need to purchase a gasket kit (calso called a "gasket set") for your specific motor. ($30)
3. Before you purchase any parts or books, check to see if the auto supply store will "lend" (free) or rent you a torque wrench. You will have to torque the bolts whenever you put the head back on to the engine block. Try not to buy one, you will hardly ever use it.
4. Additionally, it would be a good idea to get a "valve job" ($60) done whenever you remove the head from the engine. The auto supply store may have a "machine shop". Generally, you want to have this done at an auto supply store and not a "auto garage"($150). [save $90].
5. Note that once you finish, the car may run a bit "tight" and overheat a little. It will also put "stress" on your cylinder heads because the valves wil "seat" better than before.
Most important to obtain a motor book. These instructions are obviously not step-by-step.
Please comment ...
1. This is a pretty drastic step
2. Why do you want to do this?
try autozone.com to see if they have your car listed for diagrams pictures and step by step instructions if your car is not listed then try your local library they have all the car manuals and even copy them for you
