The VVC unit doesn't come off when you change the HG unless Tim stripped the head and removed it :dunno:this may help - http://www.timguydesign.f2s.com/pics/MG-HG-Replacement.pdf its for an F Trophy, so the VVC unit should be covered.
The head has to be removed and stripped to be able to take the HCU out.hello, im having a problem with my mgtf, the vvc unit is leaking oil. i would like to know how to remove it from the car to replace the gaskets. it seems to me that the bulkhead is in the way and prevents removal. do you need to drop the engine and if you do whats involved?
thanks for the replys. ok i went to Brown and Gammons and got a set of gaskets. thankfully it was'nt as hard as i first thought to get the vvc unit off the engine.
once the engine cover was removed i supported the body on axle stands. then i placed a trolly jack under the engine. once the wire plugs had been removed i undid the 2 bolts on the engine mount then lowered the jack a bit which allowed me room to remove the vvc unit.
once i'd removed it i split it apart. this showed a couple of score marks on the inner face which allows the oil to escape past the gaskets. these were then sanded flat. new gaskets installed i reversed the proceedure and put it all back together. with luck that should solve the problem. fingers are now crossed.
