Oh man, I fought with my motor mount on my 1.8 for a good 30 minutes.. I had my roommate lowering and raising the motor while I was trying to jiggle it free lol I had a couple soco victory shots after that mess!! Next time I'm paying someone to do my timing beltWhile I was watching that video 2.0L volkswagen New Beetle timing belt.mp4 - YouTube I noticed the ad on the screen for a local towing company!
I'm going to try another video. What else can I do? The Haynes book provides no secret way to get the mount out. Step 9 in the replacement instructions on page 2A-25 of the 1998 thru 2005 Haynes repair manual says, "Remove the mount-to-bracket bolts and detach the mount."
They make it sound so easy.
X2Btw, I did not worry about the timing marks until I had the mount out and cover off. I just aligned the cam and lower marks, did not worry about the rear. I also painted my own marks in 2 spots on cam and crank to make sure I knew that it moved.
