    Cam Belt Tensioner

    Evening all
    I've just got my cam belt kit which I'm hoping to do at the weekend BUT when I opened the box the pin has been pulled from the tensioner and the rod has extended. I've tried pushing the rod back in by hand but it won't budge. Can I use a vice to push it back in so I can get the pin back in? or can I install it without bothering?
    I've got the Audi World Tech article from here
    http://www.vaglinks.com/Docs/Audi/B5...cement_DIY.pdf in case I get stuck. Is there anything else or hints and tips I could do with knowing or any important torque settings?
    Thanks for any help
    Si.

    Yes push it back in with a vice and refit the pin. It goes very slowly so take your time.

    Yeh vice will work, just take it VERY slow, quarter turn at a time and wait for the pressure to drop before turning again.

    No not in the end Kev. Turned out my Mrs's brother is a belting bloke and he "found" me all genuine parts from, er, somewhere I best not mention on here and all it cost me was a bit of time fixing his washing machine.
    I have parts...
    058 198 119 (repair kit) which contains... 058 109 119C (belt) 058 109 479B (tensioner) 058 109 243F (tensioner pulley) There is also a small roller and bolt but don't know the number on that.
    All in all a right bloody result I reckon
