I was replacing a timing belt on my 2005 Jetta TDI (BEW engine). I replaced it, but I wasn't able to remove a part of the engine mount (the one which is directly bolted to the right side of the engine), so I worked around it. I tried ro rise, than lower the engine, but I couldn't get it out.
What is a recommended procedure for removing that part of the mount?
While replacing a water pump, the coolant spilled over the bottom half of the timing belt components (i.e. crankshaft sprocket, idler and tensioner). The idler with tensioner were replaced so I am not worried, byt what about the crankshaft sprocket? Is the coolant going to have any effect on it? I used the compressed air to blow the coolant off as much as I could....
Thank you for an advice!

You just have to shift the engine around to get it out. If you can't than just work around it.

Coolant will have no effect on the crank sprocket. What you did is right, just blow dry the coolant off.

Good luck!
