This requires the use of a special VW tool called "the indicator tool". Visit this site to buy it:
You will also need to buy a repair manual for your car so you can get the appropriate timing setting for the pump. I recommend the Bently manual:
It's expensive but worth it. If you don't want to spend that much, you may find pump timing information in a Haynes or Chilton manual which can be purchased on Amazon or at your local Autozone.
