    Question Cam Belt & Water Pump

    I have a 2013 Passat 2.0 TDI-CR High Line Blue Tech which now needs a new Cam Belt and Water Pump.VW are charging a mere 600, so I have started looking around. If the job is done by a non VAG garage, it is unlikely genuine VW parts will be used. One garage has suggested INA

    Please could someone advise on the better makes of Cam Belt and Water Pump ?
    and those to avoid at all costs?

    Many thanks

    Buy OEM parts and give them to garage.
    I think mostly Continental is OEM.

    We refuse to use anything other than a genuine VAG kit with water pump, peace of mind and you should pay roughly 550 at a specialist BUT don’t let them not fit new engine mount bolts.

    Vile Invention

How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Yes, most are one time only Torque To Yeild stretch bolts so they can come loose. Almost every fastener on a modern VAG vehicle is TTY and must be replaced.

    Some of them are not TTY, message me your REG and I will check. Because it is a vague area we just use all new bolts on everything, it drives us mad but better that than have an engine fall out which I have seen a few times. We have to keep a decent stock and every job coming in gets its fasteners researched, stock checked and ordered if necessary. This is our VAG specific bolt stock about five years ago, it has grown to the floor and each bin is now double part numbered.

    Impressive stock, that's what it takes to do a lot of work in decent time.
    I already changed upper mount bolts and pretty sure they were TTY as there was some stretch on thread part.
    Not paying attention can turn unpleasant sometimes.

    INA is a reputable brand. My experience is that all the big German brands are very incestuous and you buy somrthing in one box and it says somthing else on the part.
