There is a lot of the BRM cam's going south as VW really screwed it up or was it the maker of the cam, any way you look at it. Sooner or later they will need replacement. If buying a used BRM TDI, if the cam has not been relaced with an updated one do not buy is my 2 cents worth or 1. My 2006 Jetta BRM TDI is getting a new cam and lifters as the cam was starting to cause problems and before it destroyed the engine it is being replaced with an updated cam. VW does not have one as yet as I understand.
Same problem, same question. Currently have an issue with the cam on our 2006 BRM Jetta at 186,000 km (116,250 miles). I am looking at kits at IDparts, which seems cheaper than others with similar parts and am wondering if the cam is just the "other timing belt" on this engine. In short, I would like to do this just once if possible..
