    Thread: DIY: Timing Belt And Coolant Pump Replacement on 2.0 AEG! Pics Inside!

    1. 03-11-2008 05:42 PM #76
      Great DIY!
      Vasilov, you recommended a torque wrench. I would like to use one. Which one should I use? or which one do you have?
      I think I'm gonna change the timing belt this weekend. Maybe one of the serious/important repairs I'm gonna do myself on this jetta since I bought it.
      wish me luck!

      stuck in a holding pattern, and i need help. please!
      During step #10, the crank rotated a hair and i freaked because the step clearly says "you must block the crankshaft from rotating!"
      as a result, I removed the 6mm bit and rotated the crank again to get TDC before re-attempting to remove the qty 4, 6mm allen heads. In the process the cam stopped rotating resulting from busted teeth on the timing belt. hence, the cam and crank are no longer in sync.
      I'm assuming at this point that i need to find TDC on the flywheel by way of some mysterious green window. If this is what i need to do, where do i find this window?? any pics?? i can't seem to find it.
      once the mark on the flywheel is in alignment and the cam sprocket mark is aligned with the mark on the engine block, am i ok to proceed with the remaining steps?
      thank you!!!!!

      ^^
      At this point, my DIY becomes obsolete. The entire idea of the Mark-And-Match principle for replacing the timing belt relies on the notion that the cam and the crank remain in sync while the timing belt is off.
      Since you already lost the timing, you have to revert back to the standard procedure described in the Bentley manual. Depending on your transmission (auto, vs manual) you the hole you need to look into is slightly different.
      Again, consult with the repair manual.

      excellent write up... i remember doing this not too long ago, except i had the engine out for a clutch replacement as well which in turn made the TB job easier seeing as i wasnt working in a tight place.

      Thanks for the post. I did this on Saturday in just under 7 hours and the DIY took a lot of guesswork out of the job. I just have one question. The DIY says turn the middle of the tensioner clockwise until the tensioning mark lines up with the fingers. My Chilton says turn the middle of the tensionser counterclockwise, however, if you do this, the tensioning mark doesn't even go in the direction of the fingers. This is how it was when I took it off. I decided to do it the DIY way and go clockwise, but lining up the mark with the fingers didn't seem to produce a lot of tension. I've put close to 400 miles on the car with no problem. Any thoughts?

      Not sure how you get this, but everything loads fine here on my end. The server has not been touched in the past 42 days so it must be something on your end.

      I ordered a kit from ECS Tunning and it came with cam shaft seal and OE Front Crankshaft/Oil pump seal.
      Can anyone advise on how to replace these?

      At what mileage is everybody doing the timing belt/water pump maintenance?
      My wife has a 2001 Jetta with 70,000 miles. No noises, no cooling issues yet. Should I go ahead and do this anyway?

      I did mine at 95k. Although it wouldn't hurt to do it a bit earlier. I think I'm due for a second change on mine.

      I just did mine this past weekend on my 99.5 with 99,000 miles. I'd recommend spending the extra money for the tensioning tool. I tensioned my belt and then stopped work until the next day. I didn't realize the tension changed over night until the engine mount half of the passenger-side engine mount was back on. My home made wood tool wouldn't fit so I had to take the mount back off. I guess it was good though as the second time getting that part of the mount off was not nearly as bad (jack down/up and then get the right side of the mount over the timing belt tensioner and then drop it down and to the rear of the car -- I left it sit there onto of the steering rack while working).
      I'll try to post a photo of my wood tool later on. It helps also to have a "wobble" set of extensions especially if you want to torque the rear bolt on the rear of that engine-half of that mount. Without a short wobble bit, I couldn't get my torque wrench into position.
      Thanks a lot to the author of the DIY. It took me about 12 hours doing some other maintenance too (not in a rush and I was sick so most will probably be faster).

      If you want to DIY a tool here are my photos of mine:
      http://www.flickr.com/photos/c...19974/
      I don't have a welder -- if I did (and knew how to use it), I'd make a thinner one out of metal and tack on a stud or two for the timing belt tensioner holes.
      You'll see the wooden tool I made has two nails with the most pointed part of the heads snipped off. Only one nail is actually needed if the hole is not much larger than the 13mm socket you'll need to insert in the hole to tighten the tensioner.
      Bad part about this tool is that you'll need all the passenger-side engine mount bracket off to get it in there. Good part is that it's cheap and works just fine.

      Hey, I may not have read far enough down the post, but where did you buy both the belt and the coolant pump. I am interested in changing both these myself but was hoping to find if anyone knew where the best place to pick them up would be and how much do you think it would cost.

      Thanks

      Hey Every,
      Just wanted to confirm some stuff.
      1) I am Guessing that this would work with the 2.0L AVH engine right?
      2) Anyone tried this Kit?
      http://www.blauparts.com/prodd...100-C
      Since the Engine Mount is not in the Set, I would have to order it.
      2 x N90596902
      2 x N10209606
      3) Is there any other Maintenance work which should be done when doing this?
      Thanks

      Does anyone know if a 12pt 19mm Socket is need for the 19mm Crank Bolt?
      Would the 6pt work?
      Thanks

      Thanks.. for you answer and the DIY.
      I finally got my TB Changed. The Engine Mount as a horrible thing to get in and out. Taking out was easier then putting it back in. I took at least 4 hours in total figuring that part out.
      For Reference.
      19mm 12 pt for Crank.
      18mm and 16mm for Mount.
      Also you'll need a 13mm and a 10mm.
      6mm Hex Bolt and 5mm Hex Bolt.

      I had the same problems with the engine mount. After some time I figured out that I have to move the engine up and down vertically so that there is enough room to re-install the engine mount.

      Awesome write up, much more informative and easy to follow than my Chilton book, took me 10 hours start to finish with a lot of breaks since it was in the upper 90's for pretty much the whole project, and a run to the parts store, I had to buy the Hex bits to get the harmonic balancer off but they are a must have for this car anyway. I had major difficulties getting that stupid engine mount off, the one thats directly connected to the motor, one arm on it goes to the firewall side of the motor and the other arm goes to the passenger side of the motor in the MIDDLE of the timing belt!! I was terrified that after marking everything nicely and getting it dead on that I was gonna screw it all up banging that stupid mount against everything. One oddity, I had read that the impeller on this pump was replaced with a metal one as part of a redesign, when I picked up my rebuilt coolant pump at the dealer it had a plastic impeller?? Parts were a little high on this Pump was $90, Belt was $60, and the Tensioner was $120 . Still far better than the $1200 the dealer wanted.

      ... and that's why you order parts from online retailers like ECSTuning. You get the right parts on a good price!

      Awesome! Took me 4.5 hours total. Performed work on a 2002 VW Jetta w/ 2.0 AVH. I did have very mechanically inclided help (doesn't hurt that we both have engineering degrees and I run a maintenance department at a manufacturing facility)
      It actually took me almost as long to change the thermostat (but that's because I put the new one in backwards ).
      Blocking the car about 2 feet up is key, along with using a jack under the engine. (that make the pass. side motor mount my bitch (15 minutes in and out).
      One more thing to add. The impeller on the old pump (plastic) looked great for 114K. The bearings in the pump didn't feel so great at all (glad I changed it), I think it didn't have much time left.
      The belt didn't look bad at all for 114K, I feel it would have lasted another 25K. Very interesting how different the condition of these parts are....
