    I see.

    is there an easy way to check the timing without having to remove the engine mount, or is that the only way to do,it properly? Can VCDS help in this respect?

    cheers,

    In that case, is there an easy way to check the timing that doesn't involve removing the engine mount, or does that need to be done to do the job proper? Can VCDS give any clues using the measuring blocks?

    You only have to remove the mount to change the belt, checking the timing requires removal of the poly V belt and the locking of the crank using a locking plate and then two pins to go into the cam pulleys to check their alignment.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
