Great forum. Looking forward to chatting with everyone and learning a few things about my car. It's a 2004 Beetle TDI. Haven't driven it since August. It has 120,000 miles on it and still has the original timing belt. I think I'm well beyond the life of the timing belt and that is what leads me here. Hopefully, I can do this job, (with the article on timing belt replacement on this forum) but if not I will be calling on myturbodiesel members for help. Hope everyone has a wonderful New Year.
