    Timing belt out of driven pulley...problems??

    Hello
    I changed myself my s3 amk timing belt kit with a complete Continental CT909K3.
    after 5-600 km I opened the carter and I found the pulley 1-2mm out of the cams pulley:







    Can be normal? Can I do something? have I to worry about??
    Thanks

    I'd check that roller pulley beneath the crank is still firmly bolted in and not trying to drag the belt off, but otherwise it looks good to me.

    Fairly normal tbh... varies a little where they settle but seen loads like this

    Interestingly you can see from the 'wear' pattern on the belt the its 'shinier' on the outside edge which would cause the belt to 'climb' over that side of the pulley

    I didn't removed the roller crank pulley (the smaller for timing belt), I removed only the external pulley ro remove the timing belt carter.
    The shinier edge is again present, however now I will check also the idler pulley bolt and, after that, I hope that all my fears will go far! :D
