What makes Blauparts' exclusive INA kits the best?Official O.E. INA VW Timing Belt Base Kit

Schaeffler Group Automotive refuses to supply aftermarket components in their pre-assembled INA kits. They provide only OFFICIAL O.E.™ brand-name timing belt and timing belt tensioner(s) components. The same brand-name manufacturers that VAG and dealers use, just without the logos! As of January 2014, over 90% of our kits include an exclusive INA BASE kit. Partnership with an O.E. manufacturer means Blauparts can ensure absolute quality control through a direct supply chain.

Some reputable O.E. manufacturers have released similar pre-assembled timing belt kits into the market. Many claim to be supplying O.E., but are in fact substituting select components and include non-O.E. and/or aftermarket (not the same brand-name) parts inside these pre-boxed kits.

We add appropriate transit time to your 7 day rental. When you receive your package, your invoice and the tool kit itself will have the specified date that your tool rental kit is required back (received in our facility).

  • Special Tools for VW Timing Belt Replacement
  • Technical VW Timing Belt Installation Help
  • Enhanced Kit Extras

    Around the VW timing belt interval mileage, due to age, the integrity of many seals and o-rings are worn out or very near the end of their service life. These extras should be replaced and are most easily accessible during timing belt service. It's also common that during VW timing belt service disassembly procedure certain hardware, o-rings, or clips are damaged or compromised and aren't re-usable for reliability reasons. Having all of these items at your fingertips during this crucial repair helps ease and reduce frustration during reassembly.

    We include these extras as a convenience for your technician and ultimately to save you money, possibly hundreds of dollars in the long run. Nobody enjoys the frustration of running to the auto parts store in the middle of a repair (e.g. stripped bolt), or worse finding out months after completing your VW timing belt service, that one of these related items needs to be replaced and incurring addition labor costs. It makes sense to replace these extras now when they are easily accessible with the vehicle in the service position.

A Few Examples of Typically Worn Components and Useful Extras That We Include

  • Extras in 2.8L 30V BLAU VW Timing Belt Kits

    Example 1.9 TDI

    NOTE: Depending on VW application and engine type we include many other necessary and useful extras! Please find your vehicle application for specific kit contents.

    Water Pump Bolts: The heads on these bolts are know to become rounded during TDI water pump removal. New hardware is included so that proper torquing specifications are achieved upon water pump reassembly, just like from the factory.

    Thermostat Housing and Thermostat Housing Bolts: The original ALH TDI thermostat housing is plastic and can become brittle over time. Replacing it is most easily done during timing belt replacement and while installing a new thermostat. We also include the hardware, just in case it is damaged during removal.

    OE specified 10.9 Grade Zinc Plated Serpentine Pulley Bolts (Lower Crank): The serpentine pulley on TDI engines must be removed in order to install the new VW timing belt. During the removal process it is likely that the heads of the allen bolts will become rounded due to wrenching. This makes tightening back to the specified factory torque difficult. We include the O.E. specified 10.9 grade bolts to ensure that proper torquing specifications are achieved upon reassembly, just like from the factory.

    Tech Tip: Using higher grade bolts is not recommended here. Grades higher then 10.9 are more likely to shear and break off due to their inability to stretch.

    EGR O-Ring Seal: Installation requires the use of the ALH camshaft locking tool. This tool rests on the valve cover gasket and cylinder head mating surface. Some of the allen bolts on the back side of the valve cover can be difficult to reach and more easily easily done with the EGR removed. Over time the material can harden and can lose it's ability to seal.

    Vacuum Pump O-Ring Seal: The vacuum pump must be removed for the use of the cam timing tool. The rubber seal takes a compression set. Over time the material can lose it's ability to seal and it's good practice to replace the o-ring to prevent an oil leak after the reinstallation of the ALH vacuum pump.

    Motor Mount Bolts: To install the new VW TDI timing belt the motor mount bracket must be removed. VW recommends replacing these bolts. The engine bracket stretch bolts should be replaced every time they're removed. Both the frame rail bolts and engine bracket stretch bolts that we include are the latest Genuine VW part numbers. 2 motor mount to engine bracket stretch bolts and 2 motor mount to frame rail bolts. The frame rail bolts are also included, which technically can be reused. However, we include them to ensure a reliable repair.

    Injection Pump Pulley Bolts: We include these Genuine O.E. VW bolts. They should always be replaced when loosened or removed. Checking and adjusting the ALH injection pump timing is necessary after installing the new TDI ALH timing belt. You may have to loosen and rotate the injection pump sprocket to achieve correct timing.

    Valve Cover Allen Bolts: During valve cover removal it's common to strip or round out a couple of these bolts. We include these very convenient bold to ensure peace of mind during reassembling.

    Wheel Well Fender Skirt Sheet Metal Screws: The passenger side fender skirt must be removed during TDI VW timing belt installation. A few of these are likely missing on your car missing already so we include them for your convenience.

    Loctite Anti-seize: Especially noticeable in the snow belt states is the effect of corrosive road salt. This often makes disassembly of engine components more difficult. Anti-seize will come in handy to prevent excess corrosion now and in the future.

    Loctite Thread Locking Compounds: 1 Blue Medium Grade. During factory engine assembly thread locker was used on applicable hardware, timing belt tensioner bolts, and studs. We include this so you can re-create these steps, just like the factory assembly procedure.

  • Extras in 2.8L 30V BLAU VW Timing Belt Kits

    Example 2.8L 30V

    NOTE: Depending on VW application and engine type we include many other necessary and useful extras! Please find your vehicle application for specific kit contents.

    Coolant Temperature Sending Unit w/ O-Ring and Clip: In our service facility we've found that the typical service life of this switch is around 80,000-90,000 miles. Replacing it during VW timing belt service is wise. The 2.8L engine is in the service position and the coolant system is drained. The temperature sending unit is easily accessed in the lower radiator hose.

    Snub Mount: Most VW 2.8L engines that are serviced here at Blauparts have broken snub mounts and the rubber has begun to separate. This part is easy to replace when the vehicle is in service position. A bad VW snub mount causes excess loads on the motor and transmission mounts, which eventually leads to their failure. It can also cause increased inner cv joint flex and subsequent wear.

    Headlight Washer O-Ring: We want to help! We now include the headlamp washer o-ring. This o-ring is often ruined when disconnecting the headlamp washer hose, during front bumper cover removal, and while pulling the radiator valance forward. We've also outlined in detail the correct disassembly procedure in our instructions to prevent this from even happening. Blauparts is always trying to make our kits better.

    OE specified 10.9 Grade Zinc Plated Serpentine Pulley Bolts (Lower Crank): We include some extra hardware in case you happen to strip one out.

    Loctite Anti-seize: Especially noticeable in the snow belt states is the effect of corrosive road salt. This often makes disassembly of engine components more difficult. Anti-seize will come in handy to prevent excess corrosion now and in the future.

    Loctite Thread Locking Compounds: 1 Blue Medium Grade. During factory engine assembly thread locker was used on applicable hardware, timing belt tensioner bolts, and studs. We include this so you can re-create these steps, just like the factory assembly procedure.






Blauparts Timing Belt Kit Customer Reviews

What Our Customers Say...

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.

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.
