90% of all the VAG vehicles still use a cambelt rather than a chain to drive the camshaft. The interval for these is generally every 4 years or 60,000 miles up to 2009, and 5 years 100,000 there after. This is a basic guide and if you require clarifiaction please contact us where we can confirm this using your registration number. We also recommend that the water pump is replaced at the same time, as this is usually driven from the cambelt and can also cause major engine damage if it fails.

Whilst all the recalls have to be carried out by a main dealer we are happy to advise you and can answer your questions and quieries. We have lots of information regarding this issue and are happy to advise. We have found that some vehicles when visiting the dealer are subject to a free health check where work required is reported, we can again quote for any repairs advised and are happy to recheck for a second opinion if required.
Although we are the German auto specialists, we can of course work on any make and model of car and vans up to 3.5 tonne. We also have a large ramp that enables us to work on large motorhomes.
