Hi Guys and Girls. 

Iv'e Just fixed a non start on my 2004 mk5 and I was wondering how long the timing chain is going to last. It's done 135,000 miles and sounds good. No rattling for a second or two on cold start up. I've heard so many stories of chains stretching and causing synchronization issues between crank and cams. It's been run on fully synthetic oil for the last 80,000 miles at least. Can you do a chain change with the engine in situ?
