How to adjust camshaft timing on VW Passat TDI?

Does anyone have any information on how to set the timing correctly. I've just done a timing belt on mine but I didn't loosen the cam sproket I just marked the cam and crank and put the new belt on exactly as the old belt came off and tensioned it.

I have VAGCOM and would like to make sure everything is 100% but haven't found alot of decent information as to how I can adjust it.

If my timing is witing spec do I run much risk of the belt not being evenly tensioned. I would imagine that hardly any independat garages would ever adjust the cam shaft timing. I didn't have the crank locking tool which is why I didnt attempt it.

I might check it again with VCDS and post up my results.
