Depending on how badly rusted in place they are, I can spend anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour per side with them. Pushing the new ones in is easy (with the tool). But getting the old ones out....

All the ones I've done have been plastic casing from 99 to 2005, I've never come across a metal casing in a mk4 yet that's standard.

That is a strange alteration to make just for a different market, I bet they're cheaper or some crap like that.
