VW Maintenance & Repairs

Timing belt and water pump replacement on a VW Passat.

Timing belt and water pump replacement on a VW Passat.  

VW makes a great car.  But like any vehicle there can be major repairs.  Here we are replacing the Timing Belt.  The Timing Belt is due at 105K miles on this car. You definitely want to replace all the components that the timing belt touches. Water pump, timing belt tensioner, idler pulleys and thermostat. If you don’t replace them and one of them fails later, the whole repair has to happen again….
