You should be able to do this yourself if you have some mechanical skills. The belt routing diagram is on the hood or radiator core support. It is a fairly easy install that take very basic tools.

1999 VW Passat AC/heat doesn't work? The belt broke this summer? I was told should still blow heat even if no belt?


If you are talking about the belt for the ac compressor, yes the heater should still work.
If the blower is not working, you will need to have the blower motor checked for voltage and ground.

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.

Timing chain broke in back of engine on passenger side


Replacement of the timing belts is a critical maintenance item on most all VW's. Usually start watching the performance begining at about 70,000 miles. Dealer cost for the service is typically in the $600-750 range. Other parts should also be replaced once the timing belt is exposed. A timing belt failure can result in severe damafge to the engine, and can kill most engines when it occurs. Engine replacement is an expensive repair.

Hi Looking to get the timing belt changed on my 2002 Passat GLX 4Motion. I have 145000 miles on the car. But after speaking with the mechanic its going to cost me over $1200. Not somthing I have available...


Jen... I have a 2002 Passat 2.8 V6 4Motion with 125,000 I just changed the Timming Belt, Water Pump, tensioners and thermostat. One dealer was charging me 1500 dollars and the other just 1000... I bought the parts myself thru www.germanautoparts.com and found a mechanic with experience, and he charged me 420 dolares. In total I paid something around 650 for the repair. In the end, my timming belt could last me more than 20 thousand miles more... but either way is a risk. If the belt brakes the repair will go for 4000 dollars to fix the engine. I'm in NE.
