Q5 Timing belt change on Q5 - lock carrier service position or not?

    Hi all,

    I'm gonna renew the timing belt, rollers and water pump on my 2011 Q5 2.0L TDI.

    In terms of getting access, looking in the ElsaWin service manual it says I just need to remove the crankshaft mounted vibration damper pulley and the fan control unit. But in all the youTube videos I've watched, people are putting the front of the car in the service position.

    Just wondering if anyone has experience of a Q5 timing belt change and whether "lock carrier service position" is really necessary?
