Special Tools for VW Jetta Timing Belt Replacement 2.0 TDI Models

Do I need special tools? Can I do it without the tools?Special VW Jetta Timing Belt Tools

When replacing the VW Jetta timing belt on my 2.0 TDI model, do I need the special tools? On older single-cam VW engines it is possible to achieve general timing without the special tools. However, on the CBEA VW Jetta TDI engine, special tools were designed for a reason. Slight variations in timing or orientation can result in catastrophic engine damage (e.g. bent valves).

This isn't the area of vehicle maintenance to cut corners or try to save time. On these VW models, in order to achieve 100% proper cam to crankshaft timing and injector pump timing, special tools are absolutely necessary. When the timing is off several degrees the check engine light could appear and a lack of performance is noticed (i.e. - poor fuel economy, excessive black smoke and soot, hard starting). Remember, you're performing a crucial maintenance repair. If done incorrectly, catastrophic engine damage will result.

SPECIAL NOTE: Engine and Transmission Support Tools for Mk V A5 VW Jetta 2.0 TDI models

VW Jetta A5 platform features a transverse mounted engine. The transverse mounted engine has a timing belt that runs through the center of the passenger side motor mount bracket. This motor mount bracket must be removed to perform the timing belt service. To remove the motor mount bracket the engine and transmission needs to be properly supported. If they are not properly supported, damage can occur to the engine, transmission, fenders, and body of the car. It is necessary to use of the factory specified and specifically designed VW A5 chassis special tools listed below. Due to their size and complexity these tools are not available through us and are not included in our tool rental kits.

10-222 A - Engine and transmission support bar set.
10-222 A/13 - Engine support bar to fender brackets.
10-222 A/18 - Engine to bar lateral bracket.
10-222 A/3 - Engine support rod spindal.

Diagnostic Software - Diagnostic software (e.g. Ross Tech) is also needed in order to properly tune the injector timing. The timing belt tools will only get the injector pump timing to a window where the engine will start and run. The Ross Tech diagnostic software is designed to fine tune the injection timing for optimal efficiency and performance.
