Yes.. Cracks are on the smooth side.
Mainly do alot of motor way driving. But I have been known to drive a little bit harsh. Obviously not a manica driver, but give it a bit of gas now and then.
Not sure if you are familiar with GSF. Thats where I got the timing belt kit from. Now when I spoke to the mechanic who usually deals with my car, he said when doing something big like that always go with genuine VW parts. They would have lasted me upto 60,000 plus. So My mistake was going for a slightly cheaper alternative. Should have spent that extra £50-60 on genuine parts and had it last me another year or so!!!
Yes he did change it and I do trust him, as he is a mates brother and Ive known him from some yearsd and o take my car to him quite a bit. Never did remove the inspection cover.
Another question. What is that pipe (thick pipe) next to the timing belt cover, which gopes down to my intercooler called? It has come a little lose and I have been told that could result in a loss of pwer.
Thanks for thre plies..
