  1. 300 TDI Crankshaft Timing Gear Slippage

    Actually the key was still in decent shape. It must be much harder than the gear metal.
  2. After my 300 TDI wouldn't stay timed I opened up the case and stared at it for a long time. After a while I realized the crankshaft timing gear wasn't quite aligned with the outer woodruff key cutout. After pretty much destroying my gear puller and 8 M5 bolts I was able to get it off. Make sure you use a hammer and chisel to knock it back in line before going after it with a puller. I replaced it with what I think is a higher quality gear and put the crank pulley bolt on good and tight. Now she is right as rain.
