I have a 2004 Jetta, BEW, manual, 135K miles. I am inspecting my camshaft. I see the posted pictures of camshafts, but I can not judge if the camshaft is good or not on my car.
Thanks to all who make this an informative site.
The camshaft bolt is on a nub which means I couldn't use my universal counterhold tool and obviously you don't want to use the timing belt to counterhold against a 79 ft-lb bolt. The other tool is a puller since it's pressed on. Since you're removing the camshaft it's possible to get it off and knock off the pulley while it's off the car, but this is easier and makes removal easier too.
Also, post moved out of intros and title edited to reflect the more technical questions here.
