Timing belt is hidden under all accessories (alternator, A/C compressor, Power Steering pump, etc.) It is a difficult repair, on many VW models it requires removal of the whole 'front clip' which involves fenders, grill and radiator. Expect $600 -$800 cost. Usually the water pump should also be changed with timing belt - just because to tear engine down that far, it is a preventative step to save future problems.

SOURCE: how to install timing belt on 1998 vw beetle 2

I assume you don't have a Bentley's factory manual and special tool to tighten the belt. I am strongly recommending you purchase either a disc format or hard copy of the factory manual and not generic Chiltons or Hayes because it is necessary for timing marks line up. If you cant buy one I know you can try your local public library for reference materials.

80 000miles(120 000km) is recomended by the dealer but it's safer at 40 000miles(60 000km) its safer for town driving and cold conditions considering the diffirence between a cambelt change and a replacemnet engine and downtime.

SOURCE: vw lt46 1998 would it damage valves if timing belt

yes it will and most likely put a hole in the piston and snap the cam shaft if the engine is doing any more than idle speed, if it breaks at idle you may be lucky and just get away with a few bent valves but if im honest ive never seen anyone be lucky with one the normaly require a new engine. also worth changing the water pump at the same time as these do seize and will snap the new cam belt ! the only belt you can get away with leaving is the pump belt if this breaks no damage is caused the engine will just cut out ! however you will need to pretty much remove it after fitting a cambelt to set the timing so its pretty pointless no to change it

Have to replace the timing belt on my 2003 vw passat and would like a belt diagram


Hopefully you mean a sepentine belt and not the timing belt. There is a diagram under the hood for the serpentine belt. Look on the radiator shroud or close to it. The timing belt requires a great deal of engine disassembly and probably is more that most home mechanics can handle.

Show me how to replace a water on a 1999 VW Passat e a water pump on a 1999 VW Passat


It depends on what engine you have, but all 3 are similar. They are all in the front of the engine, so the water pump can be run by a belt. With the 1.8 turbo, it is run by the serpentine belt, but you still have to take the timing belt off because it is behind the timing belt slightly. The Vr6 is run by the timing belt, so also needs the belt removed. The V6 was less common, but also difficult. You do not have to take the timing belt off I think, but you have to remove the whole chassis at the front, because there is so little room otherwise. There really are only 4 main bolts holding the whole chassis front on. It is recommended that the thermostat and timing belt be done at the same time, to save labor, since it is intensive on any engine.
