      There's a tensioning arm that you swing back. The Bentley or Haynes manuals have pictures and details. I'm sure in the appropriate forum you can find pictures and lots of opinions.

      I use an 8" prybar on the tensioner arm. Easy.

      Does this process work the same for the accessory belt?

      I recommend instead of loosening the power steering pump that you just remove the four 6mm allen head bolts that hold the crank pulley on then swing that pulley out of the way and force it back on when you are done.

      I really hope your both joking.. Volkswagen installed those for a reason. To properly remove, install, & adjust the belt..

      Yeah, because it's for ADJUSTING if necessary.

      The Haynes calls for this 3299 tool for the mk3 ahu 1.9tdi. Is this true? None of the sellers list this vehicle for application of their tool. Are there different versions of the 3299? Or all they all the same?
