Has anyone done one of these?
Do I really need VAG Com if I lock all the pulleys in the same place as they were in before I took the old belt off?
Seems a bit bloody silly.
Surely if it's not lost timing, and everything is locked in place, it's still timed correctly with the new belt installed?
Also, is it REALLY a 5 hour job to do with the water pump too?
I remember doing a Mk2 golf cam belt in about 38 minutes before.
I know the Mk4 means taking off the engine mount (and replacing the bolts as they're stretch bolts.. who the shit uses a stretch bolt for a fucking engine mount anyway?) but surely it's not five and a half fucking hours.
