[Vwdiesel] SCORE! new (used) 2001 TDi Golf (w/ a few issues)

I got the kit from these guys:


and used it a couple times to do the belt.  Everything seems to be good enough quality, I have no issues.  The tools are all similar, but different, than used on the old diesels.  

Of course, Bentley is the recommended manual for the car.

The only doors I've been inside have been power windows, so I can't help you there other than to say Bentley has info for it.

Sorry I don't have a mirror.
