You WILL need the locking tools such as the Laser tools one which is available on Ebay for around ?15 + postage. The tensioner tool may be needed but you can manage without.

Instead of the locking pins you can use a suitable size drill bit.

Well I would start by making sure you're timing is right. Slip off the top cover and turn the crank so the marker lines up on the bottom cover/pulley. Check the camshaft then lines up. Did you do the fuel filter? If you did did you fill it up with diesel or just put it on dry?

Oh and this would get a better response in the engine technical section.

Sounds like you've filled it up with air. You should never put the filter on without filling it up.

However, you've done it now. Take the pipe off the top of the filter thats held by a clip and fill the filter with diesel using a funnel. You also need to pull the diesel through by sucking on the return pipe that goes into the filter. Obviously I would suggest you do this using a pump rather than your mouth. This will fill the lines and tandem pump with fuel. The tandem pump is designed so the rotor inside always stays wet allowing automatic priming but if it is dry you will need to suck the fuel through as mentioned.

Hi Neil,

Thanks for the info on the timing belt, very detailed great stuff on that.

I drive a Mark 4 golf diesel tdi and I am wondering if you would have something like that for the replacement of clutch & flywheel. If you do I would very much appreciate it and definitely would like to send you something as a thanks in the new year, and by the way i wont send you the old clutch.

Thanks in advance

Any help would be great

Patrick
