View Full Version : Cam belt change

31-12-2007, 06:48 PM
I tried to make sense of the service book info for my 2004 Golf Mk V 2.0 TDI Sport as to when the cam belt should be changed. Having failed I rang the main dealer where I bought the car from and was told 40k or 4 years. Not convinced this was correct I rang three other main dealers in my area and was told 60k or 4 years by two dealers and 80k by the other. The third dealer said my engine is a BKD type (I think) therefor 80k is the correct figure. Can anyone confirm what the correct figure is please.

Regards, Gary :confused:

yeah i was looking at this to! depending where you look you'll get a different answer... I don't think there is def milage for the change but i think i would probably get it done around 40 onwards better safe than sorry but thats just me be over pre-cautious aiiiii.!
