How many miles will last a cam belt on a VW Polo 1.2 manual 2004?

VW say to inspect the belt every 60,000miles or every 6 years, whichever is soonest.
they do not actually say to change the belt at this time, but due to the work involved in just checking it and as the belt is made from rubber compounds which deteriorate over time, it is normal accepted practice to change the belt at this interval rather than risk belt failure.

belt failure on this engine WILL cause damage to the head and the valves, normally resulting in replacement of at least the head and valves, with the possibility of piston and cylinder damage as well.

as a 2004, yours would be due at least an inspection as it is over 6 years old.
normal practice would be to change the belt, and the tensioner, and usually the water pump for peace of mind as the water pump is only accessable when the timing belt is removed anyway.

i do not know where you are so cannot give an estimate on price, but it will be worth asking the dealer as well as one or two independent garages for prices.

I recently had my water pump and timing belt changed at pepboys. everything seemed okay and not even thirty minutes after I picked the car up, my check alternator message came on and battery started...

Chances are when they changed the water pump and removed upper & lower water hoses they saturated the alternator with antifreeze/water. When installing a timing belt - IT HAS TO GO BACK EXACTLY AS MANUFACTURE SPEC SAY. (period). If the timing belt is even 1deg off it will damage your motor. It sound like they where short handed and asked the spare tire jockey to fix your car. Go back and ask for the service manager and tell him you want the car fixed right.

Changing thermostat , can't locate it on 2000 VW passat 6 cylinder

its not easy. It's behind the timing belt. If you follow the lower rad hose up to the engine, there's the plastic outlet housing that has to come off. you can see how burried it is.

1984 928 began running very rough & lost all power. Shop indicates 0 compression on 4 cylinders and that likely cause is slipped timing belt and damage to valves on one side. I thought 1984 engine had...

depending upon the rpm that the engine was turning at, I have seen "non interference" engines bend valves on a timing belt or chain failure.
if you have 0 compression on that bank, it will need to be torn down to find out why. BUT I would do a cylinder leakdown on those cylinders after the belt has been removed (so you can turn the cam and close the valves for each of those cylinders), to make sure that they are not properly sealing, before removing the cylinder head.
