I didn't see anyone mention this before but www.autotechparts.com seems like a good place to get oem parts. I am in the process of changing my timing belt and I found that I needed a belt tensioner and pulley (bearings sounded crunchy) for my accessory belt. I ordered the tensioner Wed night and received them on Friday. The part is made in Germany by Ruville so they are selling quality parts. I used to buy parts from them for my 85 Scirocco but I never tried for my Passat until now.

As a side note, my 2002 Passat has 76K miles on it and the back side of the timing belt is full of micro sized cracks. I was hoping that my engine wasn't going to have the same timing belt problems as the earlier engines. But the belt has lasted 5 years so maybe that is all I should expect out of it.
