Getting ready to change timing belt

Hi, I'm new to the forum and getting ready to change the timing belt on a 2005 Passat TDI. I need a post to get the reinstallation guide, but I'll be back with questions if anything doesn't work out. Thanks!

Just a heads-up to take a look at the balance shaft replacement page here...

Your model (unless it was one of the last units produced) had a design flaw in the oil pump mechanism...

The best time to correct this by replacing the chain drive with a geared unit is while changing the timing belt system...

All the best,
