The timing belt is one of life's awkward mysteries. Timing belts are designed to last the life of the car. They are near impossible to predict when they will snap as they generally offer no warnings. There is no wear indicator on a timing belt and their construction is such that it is nearly impossible to know if they are worn or close to failing.It is for this reason that manufacturer's still recommend changing them periodically, 'just in case' the worst happens.It's also because the timing belt has tensioners which run on bearings, and these bearings, as with all bearings on a car, wear out at a certain point.From my experience with cars in general, I would personally recommend a change of belt, tensioner and any other bearing pulleys at around 50,000 miles, "around" being the word, as some cars sit in traffic a lot and tend to manage fewer miles before requiring attention.
Unfortunately as I have no experience with your specific model of car, I will have to leave others to instruct you on how to change the belt on that specific model. Timing belt replacement, although generally requiring the same or similar methods of replacement can vary a little from time to time, and as there is sometimes an element of risk when changing the belt (note: Interference type engines), I would recommend leaving it to the pro's if you are not handy with cars yourself, or aren't familiar with this procedure.
By the way, when changing the belt, it is often pertinent to swap out the water pump at the same time if yours is also driven by the timing belt, as it likely will be.
Changing the belt can be a time consuming task, and slightly frustrating for some, depending largely on the vehicle at hand.
Garages charge quite a sum for this, and so if the water pump fails int eh future, it will all have to be done yet again. And so, I recommend simply replacing the water pump at the same time anyway, as it can save money and time in the long run.

SOURCE: 1999 Tercel. Timing belt/water pump interval change?

Hello tinaromano1: The factory specification are to replace the belt every 90,000 miles in severe service. I would recommend to replace at 90,000 no matter what the service would be. Keep in mind should the belt break there is always a chance engine damage may occur. Should you need further help just ask. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger

The timing could be 180 degrees out you will have to do it all over again. Bring #1 cylinder upto TDC check the distributor rotor arm that it is pointing to #1 plug wire, It is important that the cams are on the intake stroke and not on the exhaust stroke. The crank is no big deal just make sure the marks are lined up.

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.

I have replace allot of timing belts gas and diesel on VW the only tool I use is the 2 pin adjustment tensioners wrench part # VWW004820 at "all-foreign.com" and other store check with your local auto parts stores too. the rest you can eye, in the pulley on the pump just find a small deep socket works great. But make sure not to turn the motor over by hand or starter (remove the battier cable) you can move the crank on the cam shafts but only slightly. Good luck
