  Five piece tool kit for changing the timing belt on the 2015-2016 Golf, Jetta, Beetle, Passat and Audi A3 w/ TDI engine. All 2015-2016 Golf, Golf Sportwagen, and Audi A3 TDI use the CRUA engine code while Jetta, Passat, and Beetle use engine code CVCA. Collectively the CRUA and CVCA engine codes are referred to by VAG's internal designation EA288. This five piece set comprises the must have tools for properly timing your TDI.

Kit Includes:

 - Two red handle "L" pins  for holding the cam and high pressure fuel pump at TDC (Top Dead Center).

 - Plain metal "L" pin for holding the serpentine belt tensioner in the retracted position during the timing belt change.

- Universal PD/CR crank lock for aligning the crank perfectly at TDC while you are changing the timing belt

- MNT051 Tri-spanner tool for counterholding the the cam sprocket and HPFP while loosening and tightening their respective center fastener

In addition to this kit you may wish to purchase the Metalnerd tensioner wrench. While not absolutely necessary, using the proper tensioner wrench saves time and eliminates the risk of stripping the soft 6mm Allen wrench lands of the tensioner hub.
