Hi, looks like a great forum! I'm getting ready to do a friends A5 camshaft replacement and timing belt. Hoping this site can help guide me through it. I've done several A3 and A4 timing belts, so I'm pretty confident with that. The car is a 2006 Jetta Sedan. It recently developed a miss/rough running especially at higher rpm. I suspected cam as soon as I heard it. Been through that before...just not on a TDI. A visual inspection verified that the cam has wear...especially one lobe that is obviously causing the miss.

So I know to replace the cam and lifters...and that modified cam bearings may be an option (frank06 on tdiclub.com?) . Anyway...going to search the forums now before asking questions. But any advice is welcome.

Also, I have vag-com usb.

Thanks!

I am new to this site also and thinking about making a go of the timing belt procedure. I have an 06 Jetta TDI approaching 160k. Had the first TB job done by a local VW shot (not dealership) who did a great job but cost around 900 bucks. Looking to save some cash.
