    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My mechanic just did a timing belt and water pump replacement on my 2000 1.8T. He said that it would be better to replace the serpentine belts for the alternator and a/c because the car is old. I tried looking for OEM belts but couldn't find any. Are 3rd party belts by Dayco or Duralast fine?
