Hello, lets see if I can help
What is the VIN# XXXXX your vehicle. What repair manual are you using?
ok here is the procedure right from Volkswagen. The alldata information is incorrect the mark they are having you look for is on golf, jetta, beetle not passat.
Procedure – Align marking on camshaft sprocket with marking on cylinder head cover. – Place the toothed belt onto the crankshaft sprocket (observe direction of rotation). – Install the lower toothed belt guard
- install lower pulley, align mark to belt cover
upper picture is cam sprocket lower picture is crank pulley
hopefully this has helped please git accept so i may be paid for my advice . if you require further assistance please let me know
if so i started having problems with my passat right after i had the belt replace. my car i having problems in a cold start like after 6 hours of being stared. when is cold my car starts misfiring and the engine would shutter the engine light flashes the code are multiple misfire and then a code for each cylinder and that's after 10 minutes of the car running and shuttering i restart the and the car is fine there is no problem if i start the car for the rest of the day is fine???
Ok well if there is no cam allocation codes then timing is ok belt is on correctly . what weight oil are you using and are you using synthetic improper weight oil can cause misfires. also make sure the suction jet pump is not clogged and that the throttle valve is clean.fuel pressure will need to be checked to make sure that it is not bleeding off some residual pressure should be maintained in the fuel rail after sitting to make it easier to start if it bleeds off you may get misfires and rough running condition for the first few minutes. please hit accept so i may be paid for answering your original question regarding the timing marks this is not a free site and this is how we get paid for our advice if you would like to discuss other issues with your vehicle please open another question your running condition will require further diagnostics along with some special tools for testing
