Yes, it is. If you go to http://tdiclub.com/articles/ and look at the "TDI How To" section there is lots of info, and a step by step description of timing belt replacement.
Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't
help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a rating at present - they can't be increased later if I do manage to solve your problem! Just come back and tell me what you found. Cheers, D

Shouldn't need to remove the big centre bolt to remove the pulleys. There are 4 allen key headed bolts that hold the pulleys onto the end of the crankshaft.Remove these and the pulleys and you can then remove the timing belt covers and get to the belt.

The serpentine belt on my 2001 Beetle loops around the outside of the large pulley closest to the firewall, at the bottom, then goes around the outside of the forward lower pulley, then crosses to the inside of the one right above the forward lower pulley, then loops over the outside of the alternator pulley at the top front side, then goes inside under the tensioner pulley, and back down to the outside of the big rear pulley.
I hope that description makes sense. A picture would work a lot better, but I don't have an easy way to post it. Also, I know you asked about the '99 Beetle, but I assume its routing is the same as the 2001 (which is the one I have).
