Expert:  Robert replied 2 years ago.

Hi..there.. Specifically on the Altea i cant seem to locate one..However the engine is very similar/same wise as per Volkswagon.Skoda you may want to have a look at this video below..and then relate to yours they are mostly torx allen bolts so you need a set of those to carry this out as well as some new gaskets for which you can get on ebay or maybe from the dealer clean out is messy so any will needs lots of brake/carb cleaner/cloth/small brush/flat head screwdriver etc to free all the carbon soot off to clear it out..aswell as after which wd-40 the whole inside before refit..I do hope this helps further
