I have a 2014 Passat TDI 2.0 CKRA and just replaced timing belt, water pump and all rollers, including the tensioner. Initially the tensioner pointer was in the gap but it moved around when turning the engine by hand. Following the initial run and test drive, the pointer is now to the right of the v-gap. How much is out of tolerance? I have read 5mm to the right (tight) is okay, but want to be sure. Should I adjust back into the gap or will it loosen as it wears?
