Should I go with original VW parts? Most customers want O.E. original equipment parts, but can't afford to go to the dealer and pay full retail. What are the name brands of timing parts used on the VW Touareg 4.2L engines?

What Does BLAU® Official O.E. Mean?

BLAU® Official O.E.™ means that we have established a direct relationship with an original equipment (O.E.) supplier. Schaeffler Group supplies original equipment parts directly to VAG. The parts we supply in our BLAU® Official O.E.™ INA BASE VW Timing Belt Kit are the same as those directly supplied for your VW Touareg model as it was rolling down the assembly line and installed at the time of build at the factory.

Gen II BLAU® VW Touareg Timing Belt Replacement Kits for the 4.2L 40 valve engine contain a preassembled INA timing belt BASE kit. The timing belt, timing belt tensioner, lever, eccentric idler bearing, and tensioner damper contained in these kits are the same as those directly supplied to the O.E. automotive manufacturer (e.g. VW) and those that were installed on your vehicle on the assembly line.

The difference between Blauparts VW timing belt kitWhat makes BLAU® Official O.E. INA kits different from others?

Schaeffler refuses to supply aftermarket components in their preassembled INA kits. You will only find the Official O.E. manufactured timing belt and timing belt tensioner(s), the same as those provided to VAG, and fitted on your car from the factory.

Some reputable O.E. manufacturers have released similar preassembled 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 parts inside these pre-boxed kits.

Counterfeit Bearings?

Are you wondering why your VW Touareg timing belt tensioner components didn't last as long as the original? Where did you get your parts? A large online marketplace, selling everything from used goods to sports memorabilia? Or a huge automobile parts store that sells auto parts for every car under the sun? Many of these generic stores don't get their parts directly from the manufacturer and source their parts from unknown suppliers. There is a possibility that you thought you were getting a name-brand part, but in fact received a counterfeit.

Fake BearingsDid you know that there is a problem with counterfeit bearings on the market. Read about Schaeffler destroying 26 tons of counterfeit rolling bearings.

How To Make Official O.E. Components Last!

How long do VW Touareg timing belt parts last?Keys to the long-life of your new timing belt components after timing belt replacement. Make your new parts last! You can expect your new BLAU® Official O.E. components to last the specified 80,000 mile interval if the following important steps were taken:

1) Timing belt service was performed using BLAU® Official O.E. components. The same timing belt and timing belt tensioner(s) that were fitted on your VW Touareg from the factory, which are engineered to meet factory interval requirements.

2) Timing belt service was performed by an experienced competent ASE certified VW mechanic who is familiar with your specific 4.2L 40 valve engine.

3) Factory service procedures must be strictly followed. Even if installing the best parts, using improper procedures can shorten their life span. Incorrect installation or missteps during timing belt service are often done without intent and aren't noticed until further down the road. Fortunately, some common mishaps are noticed after re-assembly and during the final engine rotational timing sequences.

Various VW Touareg timing belt component life spans. In our own service facility, we've seen a few original timing belts last over 100,000 miles and others ready to break before 80,000 miles. In addition to mileage there are other factors that age the timing belt and related components. The following are some reasons why you see the difference in how long a VW Touareg timing belt and related components last: (1) un-logged engine idle times and sitting in traffic; (2) warm-up time in cold weather; (3) environmental climate factors; (4) related engine maintenance that may have been overlooked.
