Default Timing belt

How hard is it to do the timing belt water pump and tentioners on a 2010 1.9tdi vw caddy? I've got a Haynes manual, do I require any special tools to lock the engine in place etc

easy enough, spend more time getting it stripped than doing the job

Best to use the correct timing tools in my opinion. You can use paint marks if your experienced but these only work if the engines correctly timed in the first place. If in doubt leave it to the professionals (not Halfords or Kwik-fit)
