When performing Vw timing belt replacement, is it important to replace all of these other related components?
Just changing the Vw timing belt isn't enough. Why? Most Vw timing belt failures can be caused by worn timing belt tensioners and idlers. If you just replace the Vw timing belt, a thousand miles later it can fail due to a worn timing belt tensioner, idler or roller causing major engine damage. Not replacing ALL Vw timing belt components can be very dangerous. Vw timing belt tensioner pulleys or rollers may visually appear to be fine, but may actually be near or at the end of their service life. Vw timing belt tensioners and idlers should always be replaced when installing a new timing belt. Skipping their replacement is a hazardous choice. This probability is also the reason why some Vw mechanics recommend performing the Vw timing belt replacement before 60,000 miles instead of 90,000 miles.
When a Vw timing belt tensioner roller fails, it is usually due to the breakdown of the bearing and seal. Some think that they can just relubricate the bearing when changing the Vw timing belt. Extreme hot engine temperatures, dirt, environmental, and other related factors cause the deterioration of the bearing seal. The grease inside of the bearing also begins to breakdown. The grease then escapes, bringing the Vw timing belt tensioner bearing to the end of it's service life. There are many different reasons for their limited life span. Vw timing belt idlers, tensioners, pulleys or rollers can in some cases have a shorter service life than a Vw timing belt. Some reasons are Vw timing belt tension or load, type of engine, varying environment factors, Vw timing belt tension location, tensioner bearing design, the type of roller bearing grease, and operating temperature. All of these factors can effect the Vw timing belt service life. The idler pulley or roller can seize and cause the Vw timing belt to snap without warning. Blauparts Vw timing belt kits come with 24 years of superior Vw repair service experience. Our own independent Vw timing belt repair facility uses nothing but the best in superior quality manufactured timing belt parts. Purchase with this certainty.

Blauparts Timing Belt Kit Reviews
Some Blauparts' reviews and feedback from customers regarding our timing belt kits:
"I recently placed an internet order for a timing belt kit and tool rental. Prior to placing my order, I emailed a question about your tool rental program. My question was addressed quickly and kindly. After placing my order, it was quickly shipped and delivered with in the time window promised.
After my order was delivered, I jumped into repairs and was pleasantly shocked that I didn't have to go to the local parts store for ANYTHING to complete repairs! Your timing belt kit and tool kit truly had everything I needed and nothing I didn't.
As an ASE Master Technician, I recognize and appreciate quality customer service, OE quality parts, and application specific complete repair kits. Thanks." - Brad F.
"As a manufacturing engineer who makes a living writing technical instructions and methods, I found your instructions to be outstanding. They're very well written, easy to follow, and the illustrations are far superior to any service manual I've seen. The various bulletins and warnings describing potential pitfalls not mentioned in the service manual were also extremely helpful. Although I'm an experienced mechanic licensed by the FAA, I've always been a little intimidated by the complexity of the 30 valve. Thanks for the high quality parts, tools, and customer service. I will definitely do business with Blauparts in the future. Thank you." - Geoff M.
"I just wanted to let you know that I received my Enhanced Timing Belt Kit yesterday and I'm really impressed! From the German OEM products, and the super-detailed instructions, all the way to the packaging and labeling, everything is really first rate! It's obvious that you guys really do care about the contents and the presentation of your kits, and it's appreciated! Quality products at a competitive price, shipped accurately and quickly, with responsive customer service!- What more can you ask for? You have another loyal customer. Bravo Blauparts!" - Daved W.
"I am emailing because I was extremely satisfied with my recent order! It arrived very quickly. The kit was well thought out and had everything I needed, including tools I didn't think I'd need and one I would have overlooked! With one click of the mouse I had it all... no endless searching for that hard to find part. Also, the step-by-step instructions really helped. You even indicated the fastener sizes so I could quickly load up the ratchet and 'git-er-done' fast! Finding affordable parts from a reliable source can be tricky. Your company is my go-to solution almost every time! Thanks again and I'll recommend you to anyone." - Michael O.
"I must say that your team has put together the greatest kit I have ever seen for the TDI timing belt change. I think your instructions are even better than those shown in the Bentley manual. Thanks again for your efficient service!" - David R.

"I am sure you have heard it before, but I wanted to say that the parts were great, but the instructions were ABSOLUTELY first rate. When it was time to start the motor back up, I was confident that the job had been done correctly and that it would be successful. Thanks for the great kit!" Trent S.
