    Hi guys. I've joined up as I've just had an almighty argument with my brother whilst changing the cambelt on my 2000 Bora SE 1.9! Hopefully someone here can help me win the argument and prove he's a muppet :)

    I'll ask the question in the tech section, but just wanted to say hi first.

    This is the first vw I've owned (although I drive a 2010 Transporter in work) and its great!

    Ok, I'll sneak the question in here while no ones looking ;-)

    He wanted to loosen the three bolts that hold the camshaft on (the ones for altering the cam timing) so he could tension the belt. I told him not to as it would alter the cam timing and could cause all sorts of problems. He couldn't see this and that's when the foul language started! I'll let him do it just to get the job finished, but I marked the pulley first in case it did move. It moved a bit, then returned to its original position so all is well.

    So, am I right in thinking it was a bad idea? Please say yes :)

    Thanks for that, and what an excellent guide - very detailed! Its all getting a bit technical now so I'll start a new thread in the tech section. Thanks again for your help :nana2:
