    can't find any access to the fly wheel , no noticeable covers or grommets on my bell end housing nor can i find any crank locking access.

    finally found the crank pulley marks, they are very faint and the cam alignment marks found too.
    .

    .
    still waiting for tools to arrive, very frustrating time.

    If I was you i would get some paint or tipex out to mark those spots so you can see them clearly.

    and i forgot to say because this engine has a dual overhead cams the timing can be set right without the need to check the flywheel, all the marks are on that side... although there is a timing mark on the flywheel, it is only used in the factory when they assemble the engine, otherwise there would be a peep hole in the box.. mine doesn't have a peephole either but i got a f23 5-speedbox... yours is probably an f17 since you got a 1.8 petrol engine.

    yes tipex on the cam timing marks is a good idea, haven't found the bell housing bolt that gives access to locking the crank
    think it's under the starter motor, I will have to crawl under to check it out...

    Das Schwenkrad wird zwischen dem Motorblock und der olwannenflache oder dem entsprechenden Empfang rasiert und greift in den Starterzahnkranz ein, so dass die Kurbelwelle entsprechend gehalten wird, während der Techniker die vordere Befestigungsschraube der Riemenscheibe verliert oder festzieht. Teil. wie in Abb. 4.
    angezeigt verankert und dort die Schraube der Motoraufhängung wie gezeigt


    The swivel wheel is shaved between the engine block and the oil flat or the corresponding reception and intervenes in the starter gear ring so that the crankshaft is held accordingly, while the technician loses or tightens the front fastening screw of the pulley. Part. as shown in Fig. 4.
    indicated and there the screw of the motor suspension as shown


    .
    so what do you make of this translation??? It is using the starter motor to access the fly wheel ring...
    boy O boy am I having fun

    It means you need to remove the starter to put it into that position to hold the flywheel in place.. once you got the timing set on TDC

    Like I said there is a mark on the flywheel so you'll need to rotate it until you see it... usually marked yellow but I have seen a few flywheels that have a 0 or a 1 stamped into it within a space of about 3 to 4 teeth on the flywheel that mark the TDC... in these cases the other timing mark's should be set and locked spot on...
