Hi, I need some advice. I have a 1.6 boxer and the Headgasket on the left hand side has blown. The question is should I change both? Any advice would be welcome.Cheers Mark

If it was me, for the small amount of extra work involved and while the cambelts are already off anyway, I would change both just so I know that they are the same age and for peace of mind. That said, it is not strictly necessary to do so if you know there is nothing wrong with that other one.
