  11. Camshaft Timing Chain Tensioner Pad replacement

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I cannot find it selling separately. It seems like a camshaft timing chain tensioner (at least for V6) can only be purchased as a whole assembly. I only found the pads separately on ebay. Or if the pad is worn out then it is the time to replace the whole thing? . Are those pads different for...

    Volkswagen Passat TDI Discussion
    I just rounded 400 000km on my B5 TDi. And wouldn´t you know it. The knocking from the hydraulic lifters started allmost at once. I guess the cam and the lifters are gone. But, the oil is full of small metal-flakes. Should I just bite the apple and do a full engine change? Everything else is...
