200 tdi timing question

I have a question just took apart my timing cover to change the belt. I believe the timing is off thought. When I turned the crank shaft to line up the key to the arrow, the dot on the cam sprocket is NOT in line with the arrow, in fact it is 180 degrees out. To set the timing is it as easy as just lining it up with the first piston like a gas v8? Or how do you set the timing? Any help would be great, Thanks guys.

Turn the crank one more turn and it will line up...

Thank you that is what I thought but wasn't sure, now should the dot be exact? It looks like a tooth off.

If it is a tooth off, it is a tooth off.... It is a right or wrong thing. Check crank position by the notch in the flywheel lining up dead center on the flywheel housing drain hole, not by the key. See the workshop manual.

Thank you, got that issue taking care of. I promise I am not slow I am just going on a road trip with this defender and I have never worked on the engine before. So it is all new territory for me. Now the problem is the timing belt tensioner. I can't get the bolt off it is rock solid. In fact I have stripped some of the bolt head off. Is there a trick to taken this off? Do these bolts get stuck often?
