Volkswagen Cambelt Replacement

A snapped cambelt is no joke, particularly when you see the bill for rebuilding your engine.

What you need to know about Cambelts...

Did you know?

  • If your cambelt breaks, major damage can be caused to engine valves and pistons - damage that can prove costly to put right.
  • If you do manage to avoid major engine damage, cambelt failure will still leave you marooned and requiring vehicle breakdown recovery.
  • Your Volkswagen cambelt must be renewed no later than the maximum change interval (this depends on model but typically ranges from 40,000 to 120,000 miles) or after the recommended four years, whichever comes soonest.
