Blauparts would like to announce a product update for all BLAU B5 platform VW Passat 1.8T 20 Valve Timing Belt Kits.

We, along with our partner Schaeffler Automotive, are pleased to announce that BLAU timing belt kits for this Audi A4 model and engine application will now include INA's preassembled timing belt kit.

This timing belt kit includes the updated tensioners 06A 109 181 and 06A 109 243A. This is an updated timing belt design that supersede the old NTN tensioners for the B5 platform 1.8T engine. This updated Litens timing belt tensioner design is a requirement from O.E. VAG during timing belt replacement. These updated 1.8T tensioners are only available from Litens through INA and the VAG dealer network. VAG world wide is phasing out the NTN timing belt components that were originally fitted on your car and are replacing them with the new updated O.E. Litens designed tensioners included in this timing belt kit. The benefits of the Litens design offers improved reliability over the old NTN design by not relying on a hydraulic tensioner damper for timing belt tension. The new Litens design offers improvements through variable timing belt tension from the patented Litens' tensioner design.

Blauparts is dedicated to providing truly the best OE quality timing belt components in each of our timing belt kits! INA's timing belt kits feature the highest quality OE manufacturers that have equipped your vehicles assembly lines.

As of July 8th, 2014 Blauparts will be offering three timing belt kit options for the AWM VW Passat 1.8T 20V engines. We understand that every customer's needs are different. We will be offering a basic, enhanced, and enhanced + kit. Nothing changes regarding the quality of the parts provided, only the amount of comprehensive components included and subsequent pricing.

BLAU Timing Belt Kit Part Numbers:
Base GH21613-2-C

Note: Blauparts recommends that your VW Passat 1.8T timing belt replacement service should be done before 75,000 miles.

Note: Just changing the VW timing belt isnt enough. Why? Most VW timing belt failures can be caused by worn timing belt tensioners, idlers, and the water pump. By 75,000 miles most tensioners and idlers are actually near or at the end of their service life. VW timing belt tensioners, idlers, and the water pump should always be replaced when installing a new timing belt.
