Is this timing belt only or was the water pump included?i had a timing belt go a while ago and it was an interference engine. if you think timing belt replacement is costly then you are mistaken! the repairs to put it right were scary and the engine was never quite right afterwards. now i get belts done according to the oem recommendations and advise anyone to do the same.
recently i had my belt done on 2012 tdi b7 passat after 120K at vw main dealers for £398 all inclusive of parts/labour/vat. i compared this to small independent and they wanted £350.
believe me £398 is worth it, dont take chances with the timing belt replacement!
