Question about 1995 Volkswagen Golf
Unless you have a lot of VW specific diagnostic equipment - don't even try to do that. VW's are VERY FUSSY with their alarm systems and immobilizer; you even run into problems if you change the factory radio for an aftermarket, unless you buy the by-pass solenoid set up for your car with the radio.You might try to contact "Ron" at obd2tech.com and find out, if he can help you.

loosen the alternator and push the alternator to-wards the engine,put your new belt on ,fitting around the 3 pulleys once fitted look and see that the belt is in line.If your happy the belt is lined put a small bar between the engine and alternator and force the alternator out towards the front this should tension your belt tighten bolts on alternator.;at the longest point between two pullys in the middle of the belt move belt up and down with fingers if tension is right it should not move more than about 150ml,hope this helps you.adrian

SOURCE: timing belt settings
the tension setting for the belt?
or the timing marks? the timing marks differ. best set cyl. no 1 to tdc.. take out no. 1 spark plug and put sumthin long and thin down the hole.. like a long quarter drive extension.. and check to see that cyl 1 is at tdc.. then set your cam to the OT marks marked on the cam pulley and rocker cover... then you have to set the distributor also.. slacken the 13mm bolt for the dizzy clamp... you will find a line on the lip of the dizzy body.. this needs to align with the middle of rotor arm tip... (sumtimes a mark on the roror arm tip)... tension belt and your timing is set.. set your timing incorrectly and the car will run rough and not rev past 5k...
