just got a 99 vw bug with 2.0 engine. I need to replace the water pump, I have serp belt off and the 2 timing belt covers off, if I don't move the cam and crankshaft pulleys in the removal and reinstallation, do I still have to get pulleys lined up and get #1 cylinder to top dead center?
replacing water pump, I have to remove timing belt, but do I have to get #1 cylinder to top
dead center if the pulleys are'nt moved? serpentine belt and 2 timing belt covers are off,
timing belt is still installed. Not sure if I have to go all out with timing or not.
You don't have too but I always do it just because if a pulley is moved you can put back without the re-timing hassle, might as well replace the timing ans other belts while your there.
Is the motor bad if the timing belt brakes while driving on a 2001betle
