My DIY timing belt/water pump/thermostat and more service! : Pictures and Question

Well after debating doing this project myself or going to a local shop in Atlanta. I decided to go for it and tackle it myself. I started taking the front of the Treg apart tonight and didn't start until I saw motor! Don't even have a manual yet. My bentley cd should be here tomorrow or next. Here's a pic of how I left her tonight.




Got a question. There are these bellows? Look like vacuum actuated with plastic rods which should be attached to levers on the intake manifold. I tried to do some research but didn't find much. What are these? Mine are broken as you can see in the pic.



I'll keep taking pictures and posting my progress as long as people are interested. I'll try to document what I can with pictures or if I find things that aren't in the manual.

Thanks!

Lee

Wow, that is a lot of work. Does the dealer take the whole front end off when they are doing a replacement?

Wow! Outstanding man. That'll make a great addition to the DIY section. Your going to be a legend on the forum when your done. The way you've got it gives you all the room you need to work the timing belt replacement.

Oh...those broken links control a variable induction within the manifold. Get those hooked back up and your V8 will come to life.

Congrats on the adventure.

Great stuff! I was wondering when someone with a V8 would be posting a DIY on the timing belt change. Good for you for giving it a go, and I look forward to your updates!

And, Depiry's right, those plastic links have a thread devoted to them at this thread: https://www.clubtouareg.com/forums/f4...lem-19608.html

Good luck!
Matt

Yes, found another post on here that addresses the problem of the broken plastic rods for the intake manifold valves.

https://www.clubtouareg.com/forums/f4...lem-19608.html

I think I plan on fabricating something myself. Nothing fancy with cnc machines . Just some bolts, rods, couple bushings. I'll post a write up about it. Should be pretty cheap and last the life of the engine.

Going to the beach for a few days. My parts will be here Tuesday when I get back.

Moderator, Should this thread be moved to DIY section? If not I'll start a new one there with my write ups.

Matt we posted at almost the same time!! haha

I didn't take any pictures until I got the whole front off, but I'm going to start now and take as many good pictures as I can and do a write up with all the little things that the bentley manual may not address.

What happened to this thread? Any updates? I was hoping someone else would blaze the trail on the TB, as I need to do this soon.

Regards,
Brent

For some funny reason I keep coming back to this post to stare at the pictures. Amazing to see the front opened up like that.
