Re: cambelt on MK4 1.8t
Every 60k miles. Best way to do it is to visit the websites for www.germanautoparts.com, www.ecstuning.com, or www.purems.com and give them your VIN number. They sell timing kits that include all the necessary parts for the job and by supplying your VIN number, you can be sure to get the proper kit, as some parts differ based on where in the model year your car was built.

The waterpump is driven by the cambelt. It is under the big black plastic cambelt cover at the front of the car. It is not absolutely essential to remove the rad but it is only 4 bolts and two hoses to get it out and it gives you alot more room to work. I would change the cambelt while I was there also to be honest. It will all have to come off again when you change the belt soo.... If you are not familiar with changing cambelts and timing it up I would let a pro do it. It is not worth the chance you might mis time it and ruin your engine.
if u r not a mechanical engineer, my suggestion is to get it changed in the nearest serive center, as the it involves lot of hard struggle to do it, n about timing chain, u need to open up ur engine..!!
