    Hello,

    Can any one help me I'm about about to change the cam belt on my wifes A3 TDI 2.0 Sport Model MY 03. I have picked up the kit and the locking tools and am a little confused about setting up the tensioner. Does any one have a any service info they could send me on how to install it.

    Cheers

    what don't you understand about the tensioner? is it one of the indicator types - ie a pointer you line up with the mark to set correct tension?

    Normally you just bolt it up, then use an allen key to move it until you can get the belt on, then you release it to tension the belt up.
