I am working on my wife's 2001 beetle. Pulled the head and replaced the head gasket, water pump and timing belt tensioner.

I put the engine back together and got the timing set and she works fine.

However, I am trying to put the motor mount back on (passenger side) the engine and can not get it into place. It looks like I need to remove the timing belt to get the mount back onto the engine.

Can anyone confirm? I hate to redo the timing that I just got perfect.

Thanks,

Obie

Maybe but this is a 2.0 in the 2.0 forum so it doesn't apply - best not to confuse the OP.

Have the belt fully in place before refitting the mount, raise the engine higher and keep fiddling, it does work.
