Hi, welcome to just answer, my name is Ross i will help with your question.

techmachine :

I can send you over some diagrams and instructions on how to time up the engine but i need some more info on your car to get the right ones. Ideally if you know it, the engine code, otherwise is it a 1.9D 1.9TD or 1.9TDI and is it a manual or automatic tensioner?

The engine code is stamped on the engine block, on the white sticker in the boot floor, and in your service book. Its 2-3 letters (e.g 1Z or AHU)
