Liamautomechanic: i havent belted any newer vw golf petrol model. iwould guess u would require a locking tool to do the belt change,on newer vw cars[,recheck the valve timing,] on older vw,s we only take off the 4 allen studs, to remove the bottom crank pully.not the centre bolt. check timing again , refer to your repair manual. or auto data.for timing marks. good luck.
Edward Lee: Hi good video there man! I just did my own timing belt for the first time on a 05 golf mkV 1.4 petrol... It's a bit diff than this one... Thing is it won't start! You can hear it trying tho... I don't really know what's going on... But could this be an issue? I couldn't get the big pulley with the auxiliary belt off... So I stuck it in reverse and then it stayed so I could loosen the bolt! But couldnt get enough torque to actually loosen the bolt! The next day I tried it again. I put it back in
Daniel Domagala: the sprokets come with markers already indented on them so that you dont need to bother matking them urself. on the valve cover theres a mark and on the sproket as well theres a mark. also of the lower crankshaft sproket theres a mark that you lign up with a mark on the engine block. and to make sure u ligned everything up right, theres a mark on the flywheel u lign up with a mark on the engine block. this way you know you got everyhting perfectly ligned. I know this because I've done this.
ToiletStruggle: i have a question about this engine, please help. does this engine have hydraulic valve lifters, or mechanic valve lifters?
Liamautomechanic: @dawood1351 as far as i can remember it was a 03 model.
Liamautomechanic: @straydoggio thanks now.expereince comes with time
straydoggio: @Liamautomechanic Thx. Immediately after watching your video and asking my question, I read an 18 page thread at a car forum and saw a couple recommending a similar solution. Quite a few people there got it wrong though, a tooth out and problems occurring later, although the majority with success. You really seem to know what you're doing though, as a professional. Good watching thd. (I'm not intending to do my own toothed belt/waterpump.. just determining the level of work/skill involved)
Liamautomechanic: @straydoggio to locate TDC. or piston fully up. at Top Dead Center.
straydoggio: What's is the purpose of that rod you used? At that point, did you say plug hole? I don't know what's going on at that point. Good video though.
