BUMP for questions:
1. When removing the crank pulley bolt, are you supposed to steadily hold the pulley with the VW tool, which removing the bolt with a gun?
Isn't that going to naturally rotate the pulley and effect timing? easy not to?
2. If the pulley or chain is moved somehow, is it better to rotate the crank pulley after to TDC or original orientation? I though we could mark the pulley and the cover with a white pen, so we put it back the way it was before removing it.
3. I got the tensioner, do we remove the BIG METAL CLIP after installing the tensioner? I saw a small circular metal thing on the piston, do we remove that or keep it?
