the screw holding the engine stabilizer brace to the bracket on the engine
the screws holding the engine stabilizer brace to the suspension turrets
the engine stabilizer brace.
Applies only to B6xx4T engines:
Remove the plastic pipes between the turbocharger (TC) and charge air cooler (CAC) and between the air cleaner (ACL) and turbocharger (TC). Put them to one side. Remove the clamp from the intake manifold for the turbocharger (TC) for cylinders 1, 2 and 3. Turn the upper section of the pipe towards the firewall.
Relieve the load from the belt tensioner.
Remove the auxiliaries belt. See: Drive Belt\Service and Repair
Remove the upper timing belt cover.
Remove the front timing belt cover.
Lift up the servo reservoir and place it on top of the engine.Note! Ensure that the oil does not leak from the ventilation hole in the filler cap.
Seal the hose between the expansion tank and the radiator.
Disconnect the hose at the tank.
Lift up the expansion tank and place it on top of engine.
Raise the car. Remove
the right front wheel
the plastic nuts on the cover in the fender liner. Install the upper timing belt cover.
Turn the crankshaft clockwise until the markings on the crankshaft and camshaft pulleys correspond.
Turn the crankshaft a further 1/4 turn clockwise. Then turn back counter-clockwise until the markings correspond.
Remove the upper timing belt cover.
Remove the 4 vibration damper screws. Counterhold the crankshaft central nut.
the vibration damper
the auxiliaries belt
the belt cover behind the crankshaft pulley for the auxiliaries belt. Spray universal oil or similar around the rubber sleeve on the underside of the oil pump.
Remove the rubber sleeve.
Removing the timing belt
Slacken off the belt tensioner
Slacken off the center screw for the belt tensioner slightly.
Hold the center screw still.
Turn the tensioner eccentric counter-clockwise using a 6 mm Allen key.
Turn to 10 o'clock.
Unhook and remove the timing belt.Caution! Do not turn the camshafts or the crankshaft when the timing belt has been removed.
Checking the tensioner pulley and idler pulley Check bearing wear:
Spin the idler pulley and listen for noise. If replacing with a new idler pulley, tighten to 24 Nm .
Spin the tension pulley and listen for noise. When replacing, screw the tension pulley into place using the center screw.
Screw in the center screw by hand.
Ensure that the tensioner fork is centered over the cylinder block rib / bracket.
Ensure that the Allen hole on the eccentric is at "10 o'clock".
Installing the timing belt
Install the belt in the following order:
the idler pulley
tension pulley.Note! The variable valve timing unit on B6304S engines does not have a return spring. The unit is easily dislodged when reinstalling the timing belt.
Tensioning the timing belt
This adjustment is carried out on a cold engine. A suitable temperature is approximately 20°C / 68°F .
At higher temperatures (with the engine at operating temperature or a high outside temperature for example) the indicator is further to the right.
The illustration shows the position of the indicator when aligning the timing belt tensioner at different temperatures.
Carefully turn the crankshaft clockwise until the timing belt is tensioned. The belt must be in tension between the intake camshaft pulley, the idler pulley and the crankshaft.
Hold the belt tensioner center screw secure. Turn the belt tensioner eccentric clockwise until the tensioner indicator passes the marked position. Then turn the eccentric back so that the indicator reaches the marked position in the center of the window.
Hold the eccentric secure. Tighten the center screw to 25 Nm .
Check that the indicator is in the correct position.
Press the belt to check that the indicator on the tensioner moves easily.
Install the upper timing belt cover. Turn the crankshaft 2 turns. Check that the markings on the crankshaft and camshaft pulley correspond.
Check that the indicator on the belt tensioner is within the marked area.
Install the auxiliaries belt around the pulley on the crankshaft.
the rubber sleeve on the underside of the oil pump
the vibration damper.
Use new screws.
Tighten to 35 Nm .
Use the crankshaft center nut as a counterhold
the plastic nuts for the cover in the right-hand fender liner
the right front wheel.
Lower the car.
the front timing belt cover. Tension the auxiliaries belt.
the expansion tank
the hose between the expansion tank and the radiator. Remove the lock grip pliers
the servo reservoir
the upper timing belt cover.
Applies only to B6xx4T engines:
Twist the intake pipe for the turbocharger for cylinders 1, 2 and 3 into position.
Tighten the clamp.
Install the plastic hoses between the turbocharger (TC) and the charge air cooler and between the air cleaner (ACL) and the turbocharger (TC). Tighten the hose clamps.
the engine stabilizer brace. Tighten to 50 Nm
the screw holding the engine stabilizer brace to the bracket on the engine. Tighten to 80 Nm .
Check and top up if required
the servo fluid level. Test drive the engine.

Not sure if it is possible to have it run smoothly by being off a tooth.
The hash marks on the cam pulleys line up with the timing belt cover that goes over those pulleys. Should be two notches in the cover.
As for the lower marks...those aren't really visible till the lower aux. belt pulley is removed. Then you'll have a clear view of the line up marks. One on the inside and one on the outter area of the pulley itself.
When you put the t-belt on...it is a good idea to replace the tensioner as well.
Also when you have the new belt on...adjust the tensioner so that the handle looking thing is centered between the two notches that hold the tensioner in place to the block.
After putting all that together, its a good idea to rotate the timing belt two to four rotations till the marks all line up again. That will let you know if you are hitting the valves or not.

Unless you have a workshop manual and are very confident, I would strongly suggest you leave this job to an experienced mechanic--it is very easy to get this wrong!
