Was purely wondering if the engine in the take up! Was chain or belt driven? This is my fists VW, but I have my suspicions that it may well be chain driven as many previous vw's have been. Any ideas?? Very much appreciated
I am not sure but in the book it said something like 100,000 miles but if you look in the service handbook you should find it.It did seem a very high figure to me at the time but i could have miss read it.
Manufacturers were suggesting very long intervals for cam belt changes, but I read some murmurings from knowledgeable people that 50K miles was more reasonable. The above link does seem to agree with the lower value. I hope changing it does not cost too much, as I do moderate mileage.
