bring me the car and ill fix it for 200 bucks
Do you mean take the VVTL-i contoller out and push the shaft out from there? dont you still need to take the cam off?Thank you so much, i know that was out there, i just couldn't find it, but can i move it out the back way, instead of messing with the front of the engine?

But, if you tap it out toward the passanger side to get it out 3", dont' you have to take the timing chain and gears off? I think his just trying to avoid taking the chain off which I wouldn't mind either, Imagine the chain falling in the timing cover!!first time i did the job, took me about 2 days, now i got it down to about 4 hours. if the engine is cool enough to work on. as for going through the other side by taking off the Lift system, im not sure, but you would have to tap the shaft all the way through the head, why not just tap it 3" the other way.
I know about the zip tie. I've done timing chain sprockets on the VVT-i corolla's before with the chain and everything. But, when it comes to my own car i'm a paranoid little f***. I want everything perfect for my own car to the spec not even off a .00001"read the TSB, all you have to do is ziptie it to secure it in place
800 for me...mondale said:200 bucks would've been nice compared to the 2k i spent at the stealership
