Lupo TDi timing belt change advice

Recommended Posts

Our TDi is way overdue a belt change, but with MOT time looming I thought I’d pick the brains of the Lupo collective about what’s involved.

  • Do we need to insist on VW parts, and if not what are the best brands to choose?
  • what else should we change if anything? and,
  • do we need to use a specialist or can any competent mechanic do it?

I've never heard of anyone coming out of Wakefield slimmer than they went in. :lol:

there's an Indian pizza shop which delivers and although they delivered again the next day I just can't stop thinking about it.

I’ve learned more than I needed to know about Wakefield takeaways, but has anyone any advice on the original question?

What else should I change, and any brands to choose/avoid?
