Volkswagen Passat - timing belt or chain?
I own a volkswagen Passat 2.0 diesel, registered in 2012. Can you tell me if this vehicle has got a timing belt or a chain? I also would like to know at how many miles I have to consider changing it?
Timing belt. All VAG 4 cylinder diesels are timing belt engines. Change every four years or every 60,000 miles whichever comes first. Also wise to replace the tensioner and waterpump at the same time. Costs about £500.
