Video showing tensioner on BHW and BRM timing belts

It was added to the BRM timing belt but I figured I'd post it here first since the BHW (2004-2005 Passat TDI) is a mk4. Timing belt writeup will follow. The tensioner style on the mk4 BEW 2004-2006 TID engine is similar but you're supposed to use the 2 pin spanner wrench instead of a hex allen bit, even though the tensioner may have both. I don't see the difference since they are molded in the same piece of metal but that's what the factory says. Either way, the action of the tensioner is the same.

I believe the switched form a 2 pin style to a hex allen bit tensioner. That may explain the difference.
