You probably don't really need it, but I don't know where you'd find one.

It's the same method as VW used for years on their small engines. All you're really doing is compressing the valve enough to fish out the adjustment disk with a magnet. You press down on the valve "bucket" (the cup-shaped part that holds the disk). A variety of things you'd find around many shops can do this.

Unless I'm wrong. I never actually adjusted the valves on my CD17.

I wonder where you would even find the shims to adjust them?

Problem with being retired is that you never get a day off.
