Default Flywheel alignment to crankshaft

I took off the flywheel to replace the rear main seal and I forgot to mark the flywheel position relative to the crankshaft. Can someone point out how to re-install it correctly? The factory manual and the Bently do not cover this alignment.

Default let me ask this a different way

With the crank at TDC, what is the position of the large window of the trigger wheel on the flywheel?

I haven't worked on the V6 flywheel, but on other Audis I've worked on, the bolt holes ONLY line up one way, as one hole is off-center if you will.

Line up, and look closely with flashlight at holes while rotating flywheel with respect to crank, should be only one way that all holes line up.

thanks -- I'll try to line it up with the old flywheel bolts and then installed the new bolts.

So do you know where the trigger wheel window is when @ top dead center is ? I'm in the same situation.

The reply was correct. The holes on the bolt circle are not evenly spaced. One bolt will only install with the flywheel in the correct orientation. I ts been too long so I don't remember the position of the trigger.
