  2. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hi All My timing belt change was going well until It came to tensioning the belt, I had the belt routed around all the components (Cam, Water Pump, Crank, Idler and Tensioner). I went to tighten the tension to find that tensioning the slack had moved the crank about 4 teeth forward, moving...
  3. Passat (B6)
    About a year ago my 2008 b6 6speed had its timing chain and chain tensioner “explode”. After taking off the cam chain cover and tensioner I found out that there was no damage to the side of the head or the cam chain cover. I used an endoscope to look at the inside of the cylinder head to check...
  4. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I went to inspect the engine before doing the timing belt change to find a different engine to the ones seen in the tutorials, attached are pictures below. It seems to have a charcoal canister and an inlet manifold with a part number "06A133203AH" that the 1.8T doesn't have (The engine used in...

    The timing belt on my 2014 GLI broke and destroyed the engine. My mechanic will put in a new engine, but I need to find one first. Looking for used, as new is too expensive. Only 77,000 miles on the car, so I figure it's worth fixing, but having trouble finding an exact match for the engine...
  6. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hi, I've been researching and getting a lot on conflicting information on the internet about the stretch bolts for the right side engine mount (I'm doing a timing belt change on an AGN 1.8 Non T 1999 MK4 Golf). Do I need to replace them? If so, what would be a good place to get them in Adelaide...
  7. VAG-COM Diagnostic Forum
    Hello, Car was running fine then it just died. Won't restart. I took off the timing belt inspection cover and it's not broken so I figured it jumped a tooth or more. But looking at the scan the mileage and date doesn't line up. The mileage for the error is more than what's on the car and the...
  8. Passat (B6)
    I am in the process of purchasing a 2007 Passat 2.0t wagon with 35k miles. The Carfax shows that it was well taken care of but has never had the timing belt replaced. Is this something I should prioritize due to age even though the mileage is so low? Is mileage really the big factor on these...
  9. Jetta VII
    Silly question ... 2019 model S manual timing belt replacement is easy or difficult? My 03 tdi wasnt difficult but had a lot of steps and some really talented people put some amazing info on how to do it. Are these gassers the same? or is it easier? better yet has anyone done a tutorial? I...
  10. TDI and Diesel Forum
    Hey guys, I went to do a timing belt on my '82 rabbit with the 1.6l n/a 5speed. I followed procedure in Bentley manual, got both special tools for the cam/ IP. When I went to start it up, it won't catch an idle, if I give some throttle while cranking it will keep running but barely, and if I...
  11. Cabriolet
    I just replaced the timing belt on my 2000 Cabrio. I purchased a kit that came with the new thermo style tensioner and do to budget constraints and a lack of prior knowledge, this is the tensioner I used (next time). My question is the paint marks on the belt and cam gear align immediately...
  12. Pacific Northwest
    Hello I'm in Portland Oregon and I am wondering if anyone in my area has the camshaft alignment tool that holds the cams at top dead center while you change the timing?? I have the tdc locking pin but need the bar for the cams. Or could I bolt angle iron together and then to the cams? If I could...
  13. Passat (B5)

  14. Passat (B6)
    Recently got oil change, after that car started behaving abnormally. It wouldn’t accelerate as usual and on incline roads it will hardly run. I took it to the same shop and they said it's a camshaft timing issue. They cannot fix it and suggested me to take it to another who would have more...
  15. Passat (B6)
    So my timing belt broke and I put new on, and I am not sure if my timing is 100% correct. The car turns on, is smooth at idle and the problem is when I accelerate. Car starts wobbling and shuttering. What problems occur when belt brakes, and do you think its bad timing. Thanks for help.
  16. Golf VI R
    Trying to find information on the timing belt/water pump replacement interval on my 2012 Golf R. Currently it's a little bit shy of 58K miles and I am wondering whether I need to replace these items at 60K. Any information (including estimated cost) is appreciated.
