So, to loosen the three 13mm bolts on the pulley, is it right-righty, left-loosey?

The reason I ask is that a video online from IDParts shows the fellow loosening the bolts the opposite way. And working on my car just now, I can't actually tell, and don't want to go further for fear of stripping something.

Thanks in advance,

Jud.

Yup, standard threads on those 3 bolts. I haven't watched the video, but if you have a VCDS and are watching the timing, remember that if you see/feel it move, it probably has gone too far. It just doesn't take much at all.

Good luck,

Thanks powder hound. Yeah, very slightly movements make very big differences, but I got it to about 65. It was a bit retarded before.
