Each piston reaches the provision of VMT at the end of a compression step, then again at the end of an exhaust step. For the purpose of installation of the mechanism of gas distribution of the engine VMT of the piston of the first cylinder is used.

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Check that ignition is switched off. Remove high-voltage wires from spark plugs, then unscrew spark plugs.
2. For access to an adjusting tag of a pulley of the camshaft remove the top casing of a gear belt.
3. Turn the engine a wrench for a pulley of a bent shaft before combination of an adjusting tag on a camshaft pulley with the index located on a back casing of a gear belt.
4. At the same time the tag on a pulley of a bent shaft (A) has to be combined with the index (V) on the lower casing of a gear belt.
