    Thanks Hightower,

    I really appreciate your tip... I never knew that there was at the back of the timing belt cover.

The timing marks are inside the belt cover. You have to bring the #1 piston all the way to the top of it's travel, this is called Top Dead Center or TDC. All other timing critical pulleys are marked, if you can't see them, clean them.

Need a serpentine belt for 02 jetta 24v vr6 but cant wait on part. is there a way I can use another type of belt even if i have to bypass the a/c?

Hello Jesse, my name is Andy and yes definitely you can do it if you have the belt take it to the closest autoparts and ask them permission to walk and check for the belts because if you ask them todo so they will say...... WE DON HAVE IT OR WE DONT DO THAT......... my advice will be to wait for the right belt .........

Want to change my timing belt on a 3.2 rodeo 1998 24v engine

The marks should be in the shape of "arrows" or indented "lines" located on the pulleys and the face of the head gasket. There are alike marks on the crankshaft pulley and the face of the engine block also. Make sure your #1 cylinder is at "Top Dead Center" before you line up the pulleys on the cylinder head and install the belt.
