Just had a look in the Haynes, and it's driven off the cam belt. (Had to check - it's been years since I've played with a mk3!) It reads as though that's the only troublesome bit, so as long as you set the engine to TDC before removing the belt, it should be fine! Unless your belt's recent, I'd tend to replace that (and tensioner) while it's off.
