What about one of the mid level ones on BP's site? - Looks like there is a difference at least between the mid and low level propellers:

Quinton Hazell looks like they have some shit together:

Found it.
Thanks Josh - I might see what the local shop offers first and hopefully it will pass like Jeff Huff's radiator did.

Haha, good tip that I've heard before but knowing me would never have remembered as I was taking things apart. Will probably dive into this next week or the week after and we re-read while doing it to remember the steps and tips.

Do your water hoses remain pressurized after you stop the truck? If not expansion bOttle cap my be at fault. It's worth getting a new one as they are cheap.

With all these mods ... You might as well upgrade to a 300tdi as you have the bonnet open!! ;-)
Soapy water / KY jelly, etc. is is basically a must. Yes, good idea to remove trim panels - only takes 5 more minutes to do so.
