I've been wondering about it ever since i got this car of mine (bought not more than 3 weeks ago), TL, DR; Does a 2007 Golf 1.6 FSI need to have its timing/tooth belt changed?
So, I went through the VW service history on my car and I couldn't spot any service where it had its belt done, my car's got 97K miles (approaching 98) on the clock now, Could it be just a case of it not needing one at all or it being due now?
I've got an appointment for tomorrow with a garage where I'm having the brake discs & pads done on my car and I was thinking about using the same slot for getting my car serviced too (and maybe having the belt done if it needs one re-done now).
I've had a Golf 2005 1.9 SDI before and it definitely needed to have its done every 4 years or 40K miles (as i was told by the dealership).
Last thing i want to hear is the (catastrophic) rattle of death from this recent acquisition of mine..
