I replaced my Timing Belt and Water Pump in my 2003 VW GOLF TDI. How do I go about making the Timing Perfect?

You need a VCDS tool to look at injection pump timing. The pump is electronic, the pin is only to get to where the engine will start and be within range. There are screenshots of how to do this in the ALH engine timing belt writeup.

Also, double post removed.

Assuming you have the mechanical synchronization correct (you DID lock down the engine while replacing the components... yes?), as CCBB said, you need VCDS (new name for Vag-Com) to check and adjust (if needed) the basic timing.

If you don't have a cable and software, go to the Ontario forum at the TDIclub and ask if anyone in Peterboro who has a cable could be of assistance... People usually help each other... often for free or a token Tim Horton's...

(If you're driving East past Kingston, you're welcome to drop in... I have a cable...)

All the best,

Yuri
