Intermediate Sprocket Tightening Sequence
Note
♦ Always replace the intermediate sprocket. Otherwise the
backlash will not adjust itself and it could result in engine dam‐
age.
♦ The new intermediate sprocket has an anti-friction coating that
wears off after a short period of use, which automatically ad‐
justs the backlash.

VW GOLF TIMING CHAINNote
♦ The painted links of the chain must be positioned on the mark‐
ings on the chain sprockets.
♦ Do not pay attention to the position of any additional painted
chain links that may also be present.
– Lay the balance shaft drive chain, and position the painted
links -arrows- with the markings on the chain sprockets.
– Install the guide track -1- and tighten bolts -arrows-.

– Engage the camshaft timing chain with the painted links
-arrows- on the camshaft pins.
– Lay the oil pump drive timing chain onto the three stage chain
sprocket.
– Tilt the three stage chain sprocket in the direction of the
-arrow- toward the engine and secure it to the crankshaft. The
marking -arrows- must be positioned opposite each other.
1. Install the Tensioning Pins – T10531/2- in the crankshaft and
tighten hand-tight.
2. Install the Turning Over Tool – T10531/3- . Tighten the
Knurled Nut – T10531/4- hand tight. Using a 32 mm open
end wrench move the Turning Over Tool – T10531/3- back
and forth slightly while doing this tighten the Knurled Nut –
T10531/4- until the chain sprocket is seated securely on the
crankshaft splines. Now tighten the adjusting bolt -A-.

VW GOLF TIMING CHAIN– Position the painted chain link in the balance shaft drive chain
-arrow- at the marking on the three stage chain sprocket. In‐
stall the tensioning rail -1- and the glide rail -2-. Tighten bolts
-3-.
– Install the chain tensioner -1-.
– Check the adjustment again. The painted chain links
-arrows- must line up with the markings on the chain sprock‐
ets.
– Place the camshaft timing chain on the intake camshaft, ex‐
haust camshaft and the crankshaft. Position the painted chain
links -arrows- on the markings on the chain sprockets.
– Install the guide rail -2- and tighten the bolts -1-.
– Install the upper glide rail -1-.
For the following steps a second technician is necessity.
– Turn the exhaust camshaft with the Adapter – T40266- slightly
in the direction of -arrow A- and push the Camshaft Lock –
Component 1 – T40271/1- from the camshaft splines in the
direction of -arrow B-. Release the camshaft in the direction in
the direction of -arrow C-, until the timing chain touches the
glide rail -1-. Hold the camshaft in this position, install the ten‐
sioning rail -2- and tighten the bolts -3-.

– Install the chain tensioner -1- and tighten the bolts -arrows-.
– Install the chain tensioner -2-. The wire clip -arrow- must come
in to contact with the oil pan upper section opening. Tighten
the bolt -1- and remove the Locking Pin (3 pc.) – T40011- .
– Turn the intake camshaft in the direction of the arrow -1- using
the Adapter – T40266- until the Camshaft Lock – T40271/2-
-2- can be pushed out of the chain sprocket splines. Release
the camshaft.
– Remove the Camshaft Lock – Component 1 – T40271/1- and
Camshaft Lock – Component 2 – T40271/2- .
– Check the adjustment. The painted chain links -arrows- must
line up with the markings on the chain sprockets.

– Install the bolts -arrows- and tighten them. Tightening specification.
– Lubricate the holes -arrows- with engine oil.
Note
Adapter sleeve -1- is not present on every bearing bracket.
– Attach the bearing mount. Do not tilt it when doing this. Handtighten the bolts -arrows-.
– Remove the Tensioner Locking Tool – T40267- .
– Tighten the bearing bracket bolts -item 5-
– Install the pilot valves
– Let the engine turn a second time in the direction of engine rotation.
Note
Due to the ratio, the painted chain links no longer match up after the engine has been turned.

– Remove the turning over tool and install the lower timing chain
cover. Refer to ⇒ page 109 .
Note
Tighten the bolts -1 and 4- with an additional turn after installing
the vibration damper. The bolts must be removed again to install
the vibration damper.
– Install the vibration damper.
– Install the upper timing chain cover.
– Install the ribbed belt tensioning damper.
– Install the ribbed belt.
The rest of the installation is performed in reverse order of removal, noting the following:
– After performing work on the chain drive the adaptation value
in the Engine Control Module (ECM) must be adapted. To do
this turn on the ignition and select the following menu items on
the Vehicle Diagnostic Tester :
♦ 01 – Engine Electronics
♦ Guided Functions
♦ 01 – Adaptation After Repair Work On the Chain Drive
