You can buy both tools on ebay for and then sell them for almost the same amount.
I highly recommend that you get the tools, especially if this is your first time doing this job.
I don't know what to do to make sprockets align when facing each other. Hello Artem, first I would like to congratulate you on a first class comprehensive forum. Its kinda strange because everything I have read says it's at that location however the same sources all say its a 10mm bolt. i have a 1998 audi a4 quattro 2.8 v6 and a pulley fell off.
Sounds like you will need to replace the serpentine belt tensioner. I used the tool and everything seems to be lined up but somehow they are not perfectly centered either at the beginning or the end and Im not sure if it has to do with the tensioner... and Thank you for this informative page..really appreciated Yes they do but see the lines on the camshaft are a little thicker than the arrows on the head cap...
If it moved slightly, then use the camshaft tool to put them back in their place.
The camshaft "keys" (the one's that the camshaft tool goes into) can only be installed one way so even if the camshaft sprocket is loose, you can still use the "keys" to align the camshaft correctly. He is asking the same question that I have - took off the camshaft sprocket and the it saw the camshaft spin about 30 degrees clockwise on the passenger side camshaft - how do I get it back to it's exact position?
Per instructions I loosened the camshaft sprocket bolts 5 turns and then use a puller to pop the sprockets out.. While pulling the sprocket it looks like the cam may have rotated.
I felt this slight movement just before the sprocket popped (Which its suppose to do because it's pressed in).I finally check for a third time and realize that the hydraulic tensioner takes care of the alignment in a way too...since it advances the chain a hair when it lifts up and everything lines up perfectly he is up and running perfectly fine now..
