Hi all, just had a head gasket replacement, but still coolant getting into no1 cylinder, what’s next? I need to check if the garage changed the inlet manifold gasket too….is this a likely culprit ?

I had a similar experience (failed HG repair) with a garage a few years back and ended up doing the job myself. I’ve done most of the work on my cars ever since…

If the head was not skimmed then it is likely going to be a problem. I had against Rovers instruction did so on my 2.0 lt TDI. It worked. I also had the valve set back done as well as a stainless steel shim made to make up for the skim. There is a trick to this and that is using locktight on the Head to Shim interface just before fitting with a new gasket.
The other was that I torqued to the first settings then waited a few minutes. Then re torqued at the same setting, then did it again before the 90 And 90 finish torques.
The vmotor has been fine now for 50 K.
Hope this helps.
