Diesel timing belt

Older 77-91 diesels have a service interval of 60,000 miles using a sealed roller and a bearing tensioner with metal pully that you set the tension which needed to be checked every 30,000 miles.


It is not necessary to replace your timing belt if you have a 75>92 Volkswagen with an 8v motor. Unlike other cars they don't have valve damage when the belt breaks. The engine WILL stop running. If you have a diesel or 16V motor. Diesels,16V motors will suffer severe engine damage. These motors should have their belt replaced every 4 years or 60,000 miles.

Diesel 1977>1992 60,000 mile $379 
8V gas 1976>1993 90,000 mile $399
16V gas 1986>1992 60,000 mile$349
8V gas 1974>1992 engines $289,   with ac $395, more belts, more work

We use NEW German water pumps with metal impellers, not rebuilt, not plastic.

Extra labor charges apply to some models and you may need or want other related repairs with the timing belt job 


Don't let those bargain brake tv commercials sell you on the $89 brake job. First, you are not getting new rotors, 2nd, most Volkswagens after wearing out the brake pads, have worn out the rotors too. 3rd, the ability to stop has little to do with the thickness of the brake pad or rotor, but more to do with the integrity of the hydraulic system. The Master Cylinder, brake calipers, wheel cylinders, hoses and metal lines. Of which none are in that $89 bait price.

New front brake pads & two new rotors & labor:
75-84 Rabbit $280 Rabbit GTI $299

75-83 Scirocco $280 84-86 Scirocco $299
86-88 Scirocco16v $339
