      I'm looking for a good DIY guide to installing the Camshaft adjuster and chain on my 2.0T BPY FSI engine on my 2007 VW passat.

      Long story short my chain tensioner failed and my chain broke along with some teeth on the cam shaft adjuster.

      I need to install new camshaft adjuster, tensioner, and chain.

      I have all the replacement parts. I also have the vw 10252 cam locking tool, and the polydrive socket for the camshaft adjuster bolt.

      Just wondering if anyone has done this before, has any advice, pictures, guide for installation?

      You probably bent the valves as well. You also need the cam tool to remove the adjuster.

      Not bent valves, thank god!

      I got it all back together, performed a compression test, and all is good.

      Engine started right up, and purred like a kitty.

      How often is the chain meant to be replaced?

      Not sure how often you need to check it, but I would recommend around every 60,000 or whenever you check you timing belt.

      I R/R - timing chain, tensioner, cam shaft adjuster, and cam follower. After waiting on parts, and a few special tool orders all went well. No bent valves, and she started right up and sounded great!

      1. timing chain $76.88
      2. tensioner $101.95
      3. Gasket set $ 38.46
      4. Cam shaft Adjuster and sensor seal $309.00
      5. Cam follwer $68.40
      6. Cam locking tool $ 82.99
      7. VW Poly Drive Socket Set$ 41.89
      8. My Labor

      Grand Total $ 719.57 Not bad I guess, the stealership would have been a lot more!

      That'll do it. Looks just like Bentley.

      my engine is making a not healthy, rattling noise and I was told a camshaft adjuster would solve the problem,

      it is a 2.0 FSI ( AXX ) engine, it has a timing belt on the left side of the engine, but does it have a timing chain on the right side too? because it looks like that on the picture posted by vdubdriver07,

      is the install of the adjuster the same for both engine codes ( AXX, BPY )

      where do you suggest to get the adjuster kit from?

      Thank you

      ircsabi,

      Where are you located? Your engine code is a timing belt drive. The chain you see is for the cams(it drives the intake), and does not run the entire length of your engine. Only in the top of your cyl. head.

      I cannot recommend parts as I don't know where you are.

      just to clarify, so I have a timing belt on the left side and a cam chain on the right side,
      i usually get my car serviced at a main dealer, but they never told me about this chain,
      does it need to be serviced? changed? or anything?

      there is 180k kms on my car and that side of the engine wasnt even opened so far...

      thank you

      Yes, the fsi has a chain on the cams like the pic shows. It's not considered a maintainable item but the tensioner could be failing causing extra noise and the chain coil potentially break causing a big repair bill.

      i have a 2006 passat 2.0. it has started to make a noise when it gets hot that sounds like the cam chain tension-er is going. i am planning on replacing the chain and adjuster myself before it breaks. Did you have a manual when you worked on your car? i have the bentley manual on my computer. i guess my question is, what are the must have tools to do this job? the manual has a whole list of them, but it seems like you did it with out a few of the tools on the list.

      thanks for sharing

      I have the tools you need. I'll shoot you a PM.

      can you guys please call VWoA and let them know you guys are having to replace your chains and related parts. After I went through a month long hastle with them regarding this *maintenance*, it seems it is a very common repair that they are aware of but have stated they wont initiate a warranty unless they get more individual people responses in their system. While my car was at the dealership they quoted me a $7k repair/ engine replacement for this same exact work.
