if its anything like the td and 1.9tdi engines the gasket is fairly easy to change, toughest bit is reaching the two or three bolts that attach the sump to the block that are tucked up behind flywheel.

small universal joint and a socket and youll get them out no problems

just out of interest is it a "proper" rubber gasket or are they silicone sealed like some of the newer VDubs?

There is no gasket on the sump of a 2.5 its not silicone sealer either,buy a tube or the correct sealant from VW its not cheap but does the job better than anything else and will outlast other sealants
