Local Bozeman Mechanics?

Postby FutureStage1 on Dec Fri 16, 2011 11:50 am

Its been a looooooong time since I've posted!

I did a search through the forums looking for a shop to take my Audi to, its old and starting to show it. I'm trying to avoid the dealership prices and get my leaking coolant line fixed. If anyone one knows of a shop or a mechanic that you could point me to I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks in advance.

I could do it myself except of course it looks likes its in an area that would require a lift.

Wow, hey man! I'm gonna guess the rear coolant flange is leaking???

Auto Stop, or maybe one of the guys would be willing to help. I've done mine twice, it's a pain to get to but a fairly easy fix.

And thats why I love this forum.... That was an insanely fast response! You've replaced it twice? Did you use ramps or did you have a lift?

:thumbsup: I'm at work, at my computer so yeah... :laughing:

Did it with all 4 wheels on the ground. It helps to take off the combi valve and various SAI bits off the side. Because it's at the back of the head, there are a couple of hard to see and reach bolts back there, but overall it can be done with some serious patience.

Oh and second time I didn't have to replace the flange, but I thought I cracked it replacing my motor mounts. Turns out I just broke the temp sensor clip. But I replaced it anyway since I was there.
