Hi There,

Here's a step-by-step from some great guys over at TDIClub.com
for an AAZ (which I'm assuming you have)
http://www.tdiclub.com/articles/A3-TimingBelt/

It's pretty involved, and some special tools are needed. I've seen kits for sale

How do i set timing marks for 2002 jetta 4 tdi 1.9 injector pump


timing is set on the alh tdi with a specialize set of tools, you have a holding tool for the crank, a pin type to hold the injector pump and a bar type tool to hold the camshaft. this will set the timing to basic settings when doing a timing belt job. you must then use the computer diagnostic specialized tool to set timing properly. Again, you will need specialized tools to perform this repair. Vag-com or vcds by ross-tech works very well if you are thinking about buying your own.

Cheers,

Greg

How to check transmission fluid level


Most 1995-on VW models don't have a transmission fluid dipstick for checking the transmission fluid level. To fill and check the level of the VW automatic transmission fluid you have to remove a plug on the side or bottom (location depends on model and if you have an automatic vs. manual transmission) of the transmission drain pan. The factory manual refers the expensive VAG 1924 special tool for pumping the VW automatic transmission fluid into the oil pan.

Where can I find a place on the web that shows how to replace the timing belt on a 2003 VW TDI with out buying the shop manual? I was told that you have to lift the engine in order to get to it?


There is two ways to change the timing belt.First-only can be done by professional VW mechanic without opening the front of the car.Second-need to remove front bumper,head lights plate,cooling system radiator/not an A/C radiator/ to get access to the timing belt.Hard job If you do not have an experiance.

Timing 1980 vw pickup


You can remove the #1 spark plug and get the piston at top dead center, (all the way up in the cylinder). You can also check the access hole in the top of the transmission housing, to line up the TDC timing mark on the flywheel to the transmission housing. The mark on the crank pulley is rather hard to see, just a little mark "V'ed" into the pulley lip.

Why does my paid off 2000 VW Jetta GLS make a high pitch buzzy grinding sound. Is it the alternator ,transmission,or timing Belts. What do I do and how mauch can it run me. Am I still covered with the


The trick is to take off the belt and spin the different things and see if any of them make the noise you hear.
Water pump, alternator, power steering, air pump, belt tensioner pulley. You could also briefly (30 seconds) run the engine without the belt and see if it still makes the noise.

For prices, you can check autozone.com or partsamerica.com

How do I check the transmission fluid level 2002 Jetta Tdi ?


Incorrect. There is no dipstick, but it's not sealed. On the front of the trans there is a 17mm allen head fill hole. On the lower driverside there is a drain. Don't have a 17mm? The lugnuts for the wheels are 17mm. Flip a lug nut in the allen and put a flat wrench on it.

No special tools, no special fluid and no special computers.
