Usually it is straight across.
But did you mark the VVt pulley before removing it?
If not you will need to somehow lock the cams and go through a special presidure to get the VVT pulley set right.

You should have lined the mark up before removing the belt first and marked.
Then you should have removed the belt and turned the pulley foward and marked it.
Then you should have turned it back and marked it.

The pulley has to be set in a certain position. Some need to be loaded and others just need to be set in a certain position. It all depends on which Cam the VVT pulley is on.

If needs be I can try to post the Volvo precidure so you can try it.

Yes but did you make 3 marks on the Cam cover for the VVT pulley?
If not you WILL need to lock the cams and do the full precidure.
The pulley when locked down moves about3 to 4 teethof a turn or a little less each way.

I will have to check for sure. I forget it the Exhaust is the spring loaded one or the one that moves free.
I think it is the spring loaded if it is then no it needs to be turned almost all the way foward. It should stop like 1/16 of an inch after the timing mark. Then when you install the belt the mark lines up.

I believe the Exhaust VVT pulley should have the tension and be fully at the position to the right just after the timing mark. Like half a tooth past the mark to the right when you look from the front.
