I am getting conflicting information on when a timing belt should be done on a vw engine 1.6 16v can someone please let me know if it is 100,000 kms or 60,000 miles or 60,000kms and 40,000 miles.

Re: timing belt times (sold on expense)

54,000MLs on the one in question, does replacing T/B make a difference to engine smoothness also there's also a slight knocking in the engine. Are these going to clear up once timing belt is changed.

not if not timming related. but changing the t/b now could save your engine, a broken t/b could destroy your valves and or pistons.
