Default Timing Belt Replacement

I'm replacing a timing belt on a 2004 VW GTI and was wondering what the 4th pulley it goes around is. I know the Camshaft, Crackshaft and Tensioner but what is the 4th pulley?

Sorry, I forgot to add that in there but it is the 1.8 turbo. I was thinking water pump but my chilton manual doesn't tell me and I want to make sure it's not something that needs set in a certain position.

Should look like this.

1. Camshaft sprocket
2. Tensioner pulley
3. Tensioner roller
4. Waterpump gear
5. Crank gear

That's exactly what it looks like. What is the pulley farthest right? Is that the water pump? Does it need set in a specific location or do just the cam and crank gears need set in certain spots.

Just the cam and crank pulleys need to be timed. No need to worry about the water pump pully, just get the belt on it.

It says in my manual that I need a m5x55 Bolt to release the tensioner, does that have to be the bolt specifically?

Just Unbolt it. You should replace the tensioner anyway.

Default timing belt

Since you're in there, replacing the waterpump is highly recommended.

Is the 1.8 turbo with engine code AWP an interference motor?
