RE: Timing Belt on 80Q
I'm pretty sure all 5-cyls need to have the pulley removed to replace the
belt. I wonder if the small clearance is there to minimize the chance of
the belt jumping a tooth? Probably just to sell special tools!
I found that one of the tool companies makes an exact replacement of the
VW tool that locks the pulley in place along with the torque "multiplier"
that loosens the bolt. I think it was Assenmacher. The other thing the
service manual calls for is some obscure Loctite number. I was unable to
find the exact number, but found a cross reference which is used on Porsches
to lock the bolt that holds the pulley on.
