I just purchased a few weeks ago an 05 Passat TDI.
First VW I've owened and man do part prices ever hurt!
Anyway, just finished installing a set of Raxles.
Next is the timing belt.
I'm curious though about the apparent design flaw in the pump mechanism.
Is it better to just leave it alone and hope for the best or does it make sense to be proactive and change the balancer over to the gear type?
I tried viewing the how to page, but since I haven't yet made a post, I'm not allowed to see the final part of the replacement procudeure ....
All advise welcome.
