I just joined the site to gain access to the how to on the timing belt change for an '06 Jetta TDI. I am a long time VW owner (since the 70's) and have had several VW diesels over the years. I started a used car business about six years ago under the name, Vee Dub Motors. I try to keep a few diesels on hand, but they are hard to find. Unlike most car dealers, I do all the needed maintenance before I sell a car. That means, I do quite a few timing belts. My last one was an early '05 Jetta with the PD engine. That was a few years ago, so I wanted to refresh my memory on the job. As I recall, it was easier than the prior VW version. I sort of maintain a website at www.VWupdate.com. Unfortunately, I don't have time to enhance it. I published a newsletter for the EuroVan for over 10 years and tried to do the same for the New Beetle. I finally settled on VWupdate, but subscriptions dwindled as the internet took over with sites such as this one. Not complaining, but I think an edited newsletter is much more reliable than the posts on enthusiast sites, but everyone likes "free"!

Welcome! FYI, the PD engines are having problems with the camshafts, you may want to check it out before starting the TB change.

I agree, forums can not be as reliable which is why I condense a lot of information into the FAQ section for easy reading and reliable info. The amount of info from a forum is just much greater than 1 person can give or handle.
