Hello yes its quite possible
you need some equipment to pressurise the cylinder with compressed air to hold the valves shut and there's another tool to lever the spring retainers down so you can remove the spring collets and the spring and then replace the valve seal
this sort of equipment is readily available to most garages so any small indpendent can do the job in a moring without removing the head
the cams do have to come out so its still quite a big job
can this be done on my vw1600cc with ayd engine
