      I need a recommendation. Replacing the complete timing assembly or just the tensioner? Vehicle has 120km. Has not been driving past 3yrs in warm storage.

      Thank you

      Do you have access to a VAG-COM? You can check the chain stretch in block 93. That'll let you know if you need to replace the chain, I would guess yes with your mileage though. Depending on your finances, I'd do the tensioner, chain and cam bridge at the least. I did a bit more and many of the guides were actually fine. My car was done at 70K miles.

      I have a 2009 CC with 150k miles, I bought 2nd at 50K, I plan to work on the tensioner, I guess I have to replace the chain and the bridge as well. Since the car has so many mileage, should I work on those or should I just try my luck until the car completely breaks down then get a new engine? If i replace the tensioner, the chain and the cam bridge, How long can the engine run until it fails? another 100k sounds a crazy number.
      Thank you.

      For the 2009, it's definitely the older tensioner and I would absolutely change it out before it goes. Once it goes, it will cause much more heart ache and money. Sadly, the cam bridge only needs to be replaced if the screen is blown out, you can't tell until it's off. I got one thinking I'd probably be able to return it, the screen was blown out so I replaced it, and I use Liqui Moly oil. $200 for the part when it's just a lil screen that should be replaceable

      Notice the kits with the bent valves in this link. https://www.shopdap.com/make-model-y...ir/timing.html

      What year is the second with the 50K miles? Or are you saying you bought the 2009 at 50K?

      Thank you for replying, I bought the car summer , 2013, and to replace the timing chains, do we really need to jack up the car?

      It's access from the front passengers side wheel well. It can be done just on jack stands but you'll be bent over most of the time. I would say the reason most jack the car up is just so you don't have to be so bent over.
