However, if your car is out of warranty, you may want to change it earlier than the recommended interval, 'cos if it breaks it causes a lot of damage to the engine and the dealers most likely won't be interested in cotributing toward the few thousand it'll cost to get it rebuilt!

Get it checked @ 60k miles then checked every 20k miles
[/ QUOTE ] but vw do not give a interval but my dealer recommends we do them a 100k or 10 years (or when the water pump goes)
All dealers are robbing c#nts

I take it thats not a Passat 130PD then, the front has to come off to change it on the Passat and £180 would be very very cheap.
Mine was done at 60k and again at 120k.
Mulkbear..... You have written a number of stupid posts now for a VW tech (so you say!) You should be looking for another job if any of your managers read them.
Try having a bit of pride in your employer and the job you do, well paid and you talk this rubbish all the time.
Maybe its because the dealers are employing people like you that they as crap as they are. Dont blame them, blame yourself.

For the record, it's a 2.0 petrol. The inspection gave it the thumbs up at the 40k service, though I was surprised that the brake discs needed changing.
If I decide to keep the car and run it to high mileage I will change the belt earlier than recommended. However, I may sell it soon and let someone else take the decision.
