VW VR6 timing chain kit. If you are starting to hear the tell tale sound of your timing chains rattling, it sounds like nails in a tin can, it’s going to be time to replace your timing guides before the chains break, leading to a head rebuild. The best way to complete the job is to replace all of your guides and tensioners at one time, and be set for many more miles in your Golf, Jetta, Passat, or Corrado.
This kit is for early VR6 engines with a double chain roller. This kit includes new upper and lower tension rails, upper and lower guide rails, upper tension adjuster, and new upper and lower timing chains. A total solution for fixing the VR6 timing system.
When you are ready to install your VW VR6 timing chain kit you may want to replace your clutch too. The clutch and flywheel assembly need to be removed from the engine, so it’s best to knock out the a clutch replacement along with the timing chains. At the very least make sure you have our clutch install kit to replace your rear seal, and flywheel bolts at this time.
