Does anyone know if the UK models also have a 100k interval for a timing belt change? I have a ALH 2002 Golf which had it timing belt changed at 70k last time, but I've since heard that VW upgraded components to allow a 100k interval.

Cheer,

Welcome to the forum. welcometomyturbodies

The timing belt change interval for a 2002 Golf ALH is

Timing belt - Renew Every 80000 miles or 48 months

Timing belt idler(s) - Renew Every 80000 miles or 48 months
Replace timing belt idler 038 109 244 H with timing belt idler 038 109 244 M, at additional charge. No further scheduled replacement is necessary.

So it appears they do a modified belt idler that you only change once. ;)
