    General Maintenance & Repair
    One of the questions I have been asking is if the timing belt has been replaced. All the ones I've looked at are just over 100K and no one seems to know if it's been done. At what point should I be worried? Some of these vehicles have 110K + miles on them. Thanks!
  3. Timing Belt Mystery

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Hello- any opinion on the this situation? I recently purchased an 04 Toureg with a V-8 and 94K miles. Went into my mechanic to have the timing belt replaced but wanted him to check whether the previous owner had already done it. He immediately said it had because it had a Dayco belt on it with a...

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Glad it's over with and it wasn't due to failure by any part. I just got tired of worrying about it because I bought the reg used with 68,000 miles on it and it's a 2006 V8. I've owned it for two years and it's almost hitting 10 years. The previous owner bought it at 39k miles and took really...

    General Maintenance & Repair
    As I was going through the timing belt and set everything to what I believed to be TDC, I removed the camholder tool and proceeded to remove the timing belt. At that moment one of the cams moved quite a bit and that's when I realized I had made a mistake along the way. To sum it up, there's...
  9. Timing belt kits compared (V8)

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Does anyone have a feel for relative merits of the different kits currently available? Given that all seem to have common components, (inc waterpump), any comments as to quality, durability.
