Does a 2007 Golf 1.9tdi s have a timing belt or chain, and when would they need replacing?


Autodata publications show it as a timing belt
recommended timing belt change at 80.000miles
this is qualified by driving conditions , highway speeds , dirt , dust and oil leaks all of which will drastically reduce the service life of the belt
the engine is identified as an intereference engine which means valve damage if the belt breaks or the replacement is not done according to correct procedure
the labor time in an accredited service shop is listed as 3.8 hours
if you have been having the services done according to the service book it should be correct in what has been ticked
you can always verify it at a service dealer shop
as the manufacturer runs engine with both chains and belts , you can verify it is a belt if it has a plastic cover over the area of the timing belt.
if it is a chain it will be a full metal cover

When should the timing chain be replaced on a 2001 XJ8?


As most timing chains, when they start to get noisy, that is usually when they start to stretch beyond there limits, refer to owners/service manual for any periodic maintenance.

How to turn off the timing belt light of a 3L engine


Have you replaced the timing belt? The warning light is a maintenance item that shouldn't be ignored. 60k is the average life span of a timing belt and if ignored and belt breaks you're in full a "wallet full" of repairs. Replace if you haven't, then have Toyota or service place reset the light. That's one light you shouldn't ignore.

How do I reset the computers timing belt information in a Toyota 2007 4.7L (VIN T, 5th digit, 2UZFE eng, 8 cyl) after making a timing belt change?


1. T-BELT MODE DISPLAY
a) With ignition turned ON, using the trip switch (select/reset button) change the display to ODO, and turn the ignition OFF
b) While pressing the trip switch, turn the ignition switch ON and hold it for 5 seconds.
c) Release the trip switch, then press the switch again within 5 seconds.
d) The digital display should change to T-belt mode. The initial display "15" (0,000km) is displayed (ie. 150,000km).

2. REWRITING REPLACEMENT VALUES
While in the T-Belt mode, each press of the trip switch will change the displayed value by 10,000km increments. Once " 20 " (200,000km) is reached the display reverts back to " 1 " (10,000km) again. Remember, this setting is the number of kilometres to be travelled before the light comes on next, and once reset this counter will start from zero.
I believe the timing belt interval for all the 100 series engine variants is 150,000km, but this should be checked against each different markets servicing recommendation. This being the case, you shouldn't need to change from the default setting of "15".
Obviously for the US, the ODO is in miles, and I guess the T-Belt warning would be set in 10,000 mile intervals.

3. T-BELT WARNING RESET COMPLETION
a) After setting the replacement setting value, hold the trip switch ON for more than 5 seconds then release the switch.
b) Check that the display has now changed back to ODO and that the warning light has gone off when the engine is started.
NOTE: If the T-Belt mode is completed, even though the belt replacement has not been performed, the T-Belt warning IS reset.

Audible seatbelt warning keeps on sounding on my 2005 f150 ford truck


From the F-150 Forums, since I just bought one and this worked!

This is straight from my 2009 f150 owners guide

Preperation
1. the parking brake is set
2. truck in park
3. ignition switch is in off position
4. both seat belts are unbuckled

Disable Belt-Minder
1. turn the ignition switch to the on position, DO NOT START THE ENGINE.
2. wait until the safety belt warning light turns off. (approximately 1 minute).
* step 3 must be completed within 50 secs after the safety belt warning light turns off.
3. buckle then unbuckle the seat belt nine times, ending in the seat belt unbuckled.
* after step 3 the restraint warning light, (airbag light) will turn on for three (3) seconds.
4. within approximately seven (7) seconds of the light turning off, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt.
* the restraint system warning light will flash four, (4) times per second for 3 seconds for confirmation

you can do this for the passenger side also!!!


*NOTE
in step 3. after three times buckling and unbuckling the restraint warning light lit up in my truck. SO I WENT TO THE NEXT STEP, (STEP 4). waited 3 seconds and i buckled and unbuckled.

in the buckle /unbuckle procedure do it some what slowly and watch for the light. it may not take 9 times.

When to replace timing chain on 2003 Camry V6?


Replace the timing belt at 90,000 miles.

It will not damage the motor (bend the valves) if it breaks or jumps time

Finally, if you do change the belt, make sure that the water pump is inspected very close for any evidence of coolant seepage at the impeller shaft weep hole. If there is ANY evidence of wetness or leakage, replace the pump then. Easier to change the pump when the belt is off, than to have to do the whole job if the leak gets worse, and, if it leaks down the road, coolant on the timing belt will damage the belt, and you will have to buy a new belt, too. Change the plugs at 90 K miles, too.
