When should a timing belt be changed on a 2006 VW Golf SDI. I am purchasing one with 67,500 miles and I want to know should the belt have been changed already or does it get changed at 80,000 miles.


It should be changed at 80,000 miles but volkswagen dealers will recomend it being changed from 60,000 miles or 4 years, they do this to cover themselves

Hope this helps Chris

Not sure if cambelt has been replaced on my 1999 vw golf gti it has just turned 100.000 km and was imported at 70.000km . I have just bought the car . Is there a light that comes on on the dash board to...


No light for that. This is a fairly expensive procedure on most VWs so it probably has not been changed. I hesitate to suggest this, but the timing belt will probably be ok long past 100,000 km. My current timing belt on a Ford F150 has well over 200,000 miles on it.

1 Answer

Cambelt or chain


Your 2005 VW Golf has a timing belt and not a chain.
Most importantly, your VW has what's called an interference engine.
If th eblt breaks, it will allow the valve to collide with the pistons and you will have major damage.

Be very careful to replace the belt on or before the manufacturer's recommended replacement interval.

VW originally recommended 60k miles or 5 years but that in 2004 or 2005 they changed that to 40k miles or 3 years after seeing belts (and therefore pistons and valves) go pop after about 45k.

1999 vw golf timing belt...


this is a direct quote when I asked about a timing belt on a 99 passat

"The timing should be Good unless you have Problems with a Rough Idle."

the person has an 85% accuracy rating, so he seems to know what he is talking about. however, if its of major concern to you, its better to replace it before it snaps, adding more money to the repair.
