Hello,

New member here.

I am changing the timing belt, timing belt tensioner and water pump on my daughter's 04 Golf today. How better to spend New Years? :)

I was searching for torque specifications and details regarding the tensioner when I found this site and was impressed with the write ups.

Although this site is for diesel and hers is gas there are many similar parts.

Daughter's Golf is a 2004 2.0L gas engine. Very nice car. Midnight blue metalic as well, 5 speed manual, mint shape. Got everything back on today. Will rotate crank tomorrow and fill with antifreeze etc... Water pump was leaking. 72K on car. Only bolt I could not torque was the one on the mount to engine with insufficient clearance for torque wrench. I am beat now. Will finish tomorrow...match marked the old belt and timing belt pulleys...all seems good.

Plans to purchase another VW and would like a diesel.

Have a GM Suburban with the 6.5L diesel and it is the best vehicle I have ever owned.

Well the only one that comes back is Volkswagen Golf (03-08) 2,0 FSI 2004-04 Engine code: AXW

Which has a timing belt and a timing chain.

Crankshaft pulley bolts. Use new bolts.
Tighten crankshaft pulley bolts. Tightening torque: 10 Nm + 90°.
Tighten tensioner nut. Tightening torque: 23 Nm.

Tighten RH engine mounting bracket bolts. Tightening torque: 45 Nm.

Engine mounting bolts Fig.18. Tightening torque: 20 Nm + 90°.
Engine mounting bolts Fig.17. Tightening torque: 40 Nm + 90°.
Engine mounting bolts Fig.19. Tightening torque: 60 Nm + 90°.

Without seeing the picture you will have to work out the torque for each mounting bolt by its size 18 is the smallest and 19 is the largest. ;)
