Well, with the weather being poor and the cab being scorned till next year, I decided to service and replace the cam belt on her. Trouble is, someone previous has put 2 washers on the crank pulley bolt. I have removed the 4 Allen bolts which should hold on the pulley. The main bolt which is supposed to hold the toothed crank pulley to the crank shaft has 2 washers which are stopping the pulley from being removed. Looks like I need to make a tool to lock the pulley while I unlock the main bolt!

Anyone got any experience in this or the tool required? Looks like a chunky but of flat bar would do the job.....

Anyone know where to get a replacement bolt from? It's a 12 point 19mm

Cheers mate, can't find a bolt on heritages website. Will try a vw dealer I think. I was told to take the starter off and use a pry bar to lock it...... Those bolts are torqued up to over 200 Nm so I am expecting a fight!

Sorry for the late reply mate, got it off, there was just a bit of corrosion on the washers making it look like the pulley was still fixed! :roll:

Timing belt changed and full service completed along with new electrical ignition bits :lol: 8-)
