Volkswagen Jetta, Beetle, And Golf (1.8L L4) Timing Belt Kit - Highlights, And Product Review

Blog Feature

MK4 Volkswagen Jettas, Beetles, and Golfs use timing belts that have a replacement interval of 60,000 miles. Failure of the timing belt can result in costly repairs, so it's best to replace the belt if you're unsure when it was last, or if it shows signs of wear. 

Going to the dealer to have your timing belt replaced is expensive, typically running anywhere from $800 to $1500. By completing this repair yourself at home, you can save a ton of money, and service other components while you're in there. Plus, as with everything we sell, this belt kit comes with our Lifetime Replacement Guarantee, saving you even more money if you ever have to replace it in the future. 

This handy VW Timing Belt Kit comes with not only everything you need, but everything that should be replaced when servicing your timing belt. That includes:

  • Timing Belt Tensioner Roller
  • Engine Coolant Thermostat
  • Accessory Drive Belt
  • Engine Camshaft Seal
  • Engine Crankshaft Seal
  • Engine Timing Chain Tensioner Gasket Set
  • Engine Water Pump
  • Engine Timing Belt Tensioner
  • Engine Coolant Thermostat Housing Cover
  • Engine Timing Belt
