I'm running at 53k miles and plan on doing my timing belt around 65-70..... any of you guys done it yet?  I'm looking for some help with it.  I really don't wanna mess things up.  Wife thinks I should bring it to the dealer.. but.... I don't want to Smilie_PDT

I want to learn to do it for my gf's TDI.  She is at 72k right now.  Probably try to do it in the next few months.  You have almost a year (depending on driving habits) to worry about this.

easy to say that once you've gotten yours done...  Smilie_PDT personally... I caught HELL, but then again, I swapped tensioners, the water pump, both belts, etc all at once.

I swapped to a manual tensioner, both belts, water pump, and thermostat.  It's also worse to do it on a APR sgt3 as the turbo/wastegate is right there, and makes it impossible to pull the mount out.  But, I did it in a parking lot, took the whole day by myself.  Then 3 days later,  i was on a track giving it hell!

You really should take care of that haze on your headlight covers.  You know something bad has gotten in when the moldy-residue starts growing BLUE.
