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?
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!
is that look good? anything different in Bentley? (my old paper manual has nothing on cam chain)
That'll do it. Looks just like Bentley.
