As long as it lines up eventually it's alright...  I hope you're good at ratios... :wink:  The cam and crank will line up every 2nd rotation, but the fuel pump is only every 3*.  So the first time they'll all line up is on the 6th rotation.  You're meant to do it twice so that makes it 12 times.  You'll lose count before then anyway. :laugh:

*Or if your name's Albert, the fuel pump never lined up at all 😄

Completed the cam belt change today on the 1.4 tdci doner car had a few swearing moments. But was the best feeling when it started first time. Bliss. Thankyou so much for this guide just saved me over 400 quid took me about 6 hours in total doing alot of breaking off for dinner, drinks and searching for parts. Bought a 12mm drill bit for the flywheel and grinded it down but still wouldnt fit as I realised some same size drill bits have different size shafts 😂 (wasted 5er) also broke my grinder disk so couldn't cut anything else down to size lol. Luckily after some searching found a bolt that fit so snug. Got soaked in coolant Haha. But I'm now wiser and more confident to tackle the 1.6zs tdci.

 

Cheers guys 👍
