    The teeth on my timing belt shredded in my 2005 TDI Jetta, BEW. The Cam is 9 o'clock. How do I adjust this to TDC without screwing it up?

    ll its like doing the cam job after you replace the valves you bent, yes time to pull the head

    Is there any chance it could have jumped without killing the valves? I had a GTI that jumped timing, and somehow managed to remain unscathed.

    head/piston/rod costs more then set of valves... cause the head pops off if ya dont.. they crack, not bend..

    head of valve then destroys head/piston and tend to bend rod too..

    Unfortunately the Diesel is an "interference fit". This means that the valves occupy the same space as the piston when they are open. They piston will hit them if they are open when the piston comes to TDC. If the engine had any RPM higher than idle when the belt stripped you really need to pull the head and have it inspected for bent /cracked valves. Normally the pistons will be OK but they deserve a look at their tops to make sure they didn't crack.
