    Hi, So i replaced the timing belt at 79K miles on my 2001 1.8T in July. All was well until last week when on of the motor mount bolts broke which caused the new timing belt to get shredded and jammed, although it did not completely break off, behind the the idler. I have since read that the...

    I had my water pump, timing tensioner and timing belt replaced only a few months ago, the timing belt was being difficult and it went off a couple of teeth during install.

    Hi all, Gotta 3rd Gen 96 Jetta (2.0). Timing belt broke when running. However, I have the understanding that this particular engine is of the type where damage does not necessarily occur when this happens (clearance fit or interference fit?). Can someone confirm that? So, put new timing kit...

    Ok, the water pump went out in style on my 2001 1.8. The belt was about 1/4" away from coming off the water pump (lucky me).
