      I'm not sure what gives. was a running car pulled into garage. 2001 audi tt engine code awp had a code for vvt failing to reach upper limit. I did timing belt kit and chain tensioner replacement. rolled engine over by hand afterward, all marks checked out so I pulled the tensioner pin and reassembled the front of the engine. tried to start it and the engine made a squeal and seized instantly. I believe the squeal was from the starter cause the engine didn't even make a quarter rotation. it is now locked in both directions. ill be stripping it back down to the timing belt when I have time, as of now not sure if its the top or bottom that is stuck and generally confused as to what happened.

      BTW this was a faulty tensioner. Bolt bent when I released tension, and the roller locked up. Wow been awhile lol. Thanks for all the help.

      Thank you for updating, despite the lack of help. New owners like me search the forums for info all the time. This was useful.
