Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
I have a Haynes manual that I followed to remove the old timiing belt the new one is so tight I can't get it on without turning the gears, but if I turn the gears I 'll lose the timing so how do I get the new one on??
Look at the diagram in the manual that shows you the parts that the belt goes round. One will be the tension adjuster. Slacken off the adjuster as much as posible then tighten it in position until you have the belt in place and all your timing marks are lined up. Then slowly untighten the adjuster and set the belt tension as per the manual.
