Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang here to help!!
Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail. Do not rate yet, just reply. Put yourself in my shoes, I can not see, smell, hear, feel or touch your car, nor do I know any history on it. So take into consideration I am doing my best based on what you tell me. Also understand fixing cars often requires sophisticated tools, that you may not own. So even if you can not do what is outlined in my answer, that does not mean my answer is wrong deserving to be rated negative.

did you replace any parts of the engine when this adjustment was made?

what scan tool are you using ? make and model?

please let me know

ALSO ON WHICH SIDE OF THE ENGINE IS THE #1 CYLINDER ?
THANKS
VW Mechanic: Wolfgang, VW Master Technician replied 2 years ago

i can't afford $50 for a phone call......
VW Mechanic: Wolfgang, VW Master Technician replied 2 years ago

The issue at hand is an extensive case that is why the $50 call. You are dealing with a master tech at a Vw dealer. You may want to reconsider
