    I forgot to mention. For anyone who wants to remove the driver side control arm on the DSG, remove your dogbone mount and take your widow maker jack and wedge it between the subframe and back of engine block and pad it with a wooden block or something.

    Mk6 gti liquid spraying around pulleys

    The water pump is on the other side of the engine block. The upper timing cover can leak oil though and can cause a mess all over the passenger side of the engine. Looks like you got a little oil coming out of the intercooler piping too might want to check the o-rings on that coupler.

    Fuel pressure sensor replacement

    My car doesn't even have that bracket anymore lol. I think dealer never reinstalled it when doing a carbon cleaning with the previous owner. Makes the intake manifold a hell of a lot easier to get off now, and seems pretty stable still without it still

    Fuel pressure sensor replacement

    Same symptoms as my failed injector. It also gave me a low fuel pressure fault. If you pull the spark plug you can prob confirm it should be very wet with fuel
