i have been looking into this alot and have found the answer i hope.

the probelm is that when some people replace the cam belt they dont slacken of the cam spockets and this willl lead to incorrect torsion timing....

anybody with autodata cd it tells you in there how to it ....

mines booked in tuesday to get redone so hopefully all will be well.

heres some think i found on another site....

Ok guys I am happy to report that my car no longer has the shakes

When the car went to the specialist they first checked the torsion value on their VAS system
it was reading -4.4, although VW tolerance is -6 to +6 they called VW who said it should be as
close to 0 as possible, mine is now at -1 and is running perfectly.

The key to this is loosening the three 13mm nuts on each cam pulley after inserting the 6mm locking
pins in the sprocket and locking the crank.

Rotating the cam sprocket to the clockwise position on the elongated hole, then when the tension is
applied to the new belt it will pull the sprockets round to where they should be, the three bolts are
tightened on each sprocket, the keys removed and hey presto, timed up correctly.

When the garage got my car they locked off the crank and couldn't insert the cam pins, proving that the
timing was way out.
