    Hi guys, replaced my big end bearings with genuine ones and also replaced the bolts at the same time, surprisingly the shells were showing very little wear even the uppers, they didn't have any signs of brass coloured material or much wear, they were still the older part number so replaced anyway this was at 68k
    Filled with quantum longlife 3 and will keep to fixed service intervals
    Thanks for all the advice

    Iíve changed about 10 bxe engines this year. Interestingly Iíve only just seen my first 09 failure in a Passat estate. The rest are all 07/08 and never bkc engines ( found roughly in 05/06 cars) Mileage in the engine failures Iíve seen vary from 85k to 130k and some with a full history and some with no history.

    The bxe comes in all the vag range and fail in seat alteas all the way through to the vw touran. The touran used the bxe up to 2010 where the golf seems to have got rid of it late 08 early 09

    It is longlife servicing that is to blame, change the oil every 9300 miles, replace the bearings at 100k and they don’t fail, of our customers I have never seen a single failure.

    Most with the BXE are reluctant to change the bearings as the engines second hand are so cheap. Most leave it to chance and stick to the service. Different story with the BLS engine though. Very rare I see a BXF. Maybe once in 4 years and it had failed.

    Jon44w have you had any bxe engines fail that have had Conrod bearings and bolts replaced previously? Are the bearings bad in the bxe engine failures you see? Ive replaced my bearings and bolts with the latest genuine parts but there wasn't much wear on any of the bearings on the top or the bottom, the bearing part number had changed from an A which I had and the new ones were B for the top bearing though, my old bearings didn't look like all the ones posted that show the top ones a bronze colour, they were pretty good

    If it has some miles on it I would say it has either been exceptionally well maintained with 5K oil changes or the bearings have already been done. Every car I have done them on has had worn uppers. I have myself never seen the failure anyway either done or not.

    I donít pay much attention to the bearings on the scrap engine but I will have a look the next time and post on here.

    I doubt they have been replaced as there is no sign in the service book or receipts of any of the cars ever having it done. That I do check.

    The reason crasher has never seen a failed engine is because his customers are replacing their bearings. A job which he has done many times and I havenít. It canít be a coincidence then that I have then replaced engines many times and he hasnít.
