If you've not done this before, I highly recommend purchasing an after-market DIY service manual which will guide you in such service. Improperly installed timing belts can destroy your engine when the key is turned the first time after replacement. This can happen in any 'interference' type engine and can cause the pistons to hit the valves if they are in the wrong position.
I prefer Haynes manuals and the one for your car can be seen here:

Hey, Just recently bought a 2001 Petrol Golf gti that'd done 99,000kms and hadnt had the timing belt done. I'm currently on 101,000... I know it is probably not recommended I drive anymore, but...


Volkswagen recommends only to check the timing belt & tensioner first time at 90,000 km, then every 30,000 km. Renew as necessary.
CAUTION: The most important fact is that the car is 10 years old. Do NOT drive the car without timing kit renewal !!!

2001 golf, changed timing belt, now car only goes to 2800 rpm


check that you havent bent a valve in the cylinder head. Do a compression check on each of the cylinders if it is low on any this more than likely a bent valve resulting in no power from that cylinder.
