Excellent find.  I have already had to have the head unit upgrade for amp clipping and also had the airbag control module replaced too. 2 Karma points for you Zulu!

since this is about service bullitens heres one. volkswagen tells you to check you timing belt at 60k miles then at 80k and replace at 105k im at 81k and my belt brakes and seeing how the 1.8t is an interference engine I bent every valve... yes all 20 of them so regardless of what volkswagen says change it at 80k at the max.

This makes no sense!!!

How the hell do you "check" a timing belt. the only way to see the timing belt is to remove the timing cover. and if it's already off then you should change it and the water pump at the same time.

And it's REQUIRED to be changed at 60,000 miles. It states that right in the owners manual.

Zulu,

Do you have a login for the Alldata site? I would really appreciate borrowing it to print the tsb's. Or could you email me a couple if I give you the TSB #'s?

I'd like the airbag ones to give to the dealer (having my 2nd "airbag fault" warning):

6906-05 MAY 06 Air Bag System - Warning Lamp ON/DTC's 01217 & 01218
6906-03 FEB 06 Air Bag System - Air Bag Module ID and Coding

Thanks!

-Eric
