Hi all; New to the forum after browsing other sites etc. for timing belt change how-to's. I don't know if it is worth the effort or not. I would like to say "I have done that!" more than saving a few bucks. I have 2 2000 jetta tdi's; one is 6000 kilometres away from 300K, and the other is 30K away. It is a used engine with 260K on it in a jetta with 420K on it. I have more money invested in it than it is worth, so I plan on keeping it for quite a while. Still a great ride!
