  Deluxe 23 piece Timing Belt Kit for the 2015- 2016 Golf, Golf Sportwagen, Jetta, Beetle, Passat, and Audi A3 TDI.  

  All 4 cylinder TDIs In the US and Canada market of model years 2015 and 2016 use either the CVCA or CRUA engine codes. These engines fall within the EA288 family. Our EA288 timing kit includes every part needed to quickly get the job done right! If you are planning a DIY replacement consider the specialty tool set sold separately. <LINK> We only supply INA, IPD, and Litens brand tensioner and idler rollers, not the cheaper and lower quality SKF or GMB parts found in our competitor's kits. A European-manufactured Hepu brand water pump with electronically controlled shroud allows for maximal flow as well as rapid warm up times. Truly Peace of Mind in a box!

  • We buy our timing belts, serpentine belts, rollers, and tensioners directly from the OE manufacturers so we have the freshest stock with the least amount of handling and time in storage.

    Passat TDI EA288 Timing belt kit

    Complete timing belt kit I brought the tools to replace the timing belt from Diesel Geek. The video was a great help to make the replacement of timing belt and other components easy. One more pro tip! A set of Knipex Tools 85 51 250 A, 10" Hose Clamp Pliers makes the removal of all the pipe clamps much easier. Highly recommend buying a set of these before starting this job.

    If you follow the video it is an easy job to do. I took my time and worked for an hour at a time over the weekend. probably took me less than 5 hours to do. if I had to do it again it would be much faster.

    Highly recommend this kit.

    Excellent parts kit, tool kit, and video!

    I ordered the timing belt kit (with the video) and the tool kit, and it arrived the next day (I'm not too far away in CO, but still, super quick shipping). Everything was perfectly packaged. I set aside a day to do the job, and, I can't believe I'm saying this, but it was a joy to do the service. The money and time saved was secondary only to knowing that everything was done 100% properly. I'll leave this review under the parts kit, video, and tool kit.

    Timing belt parts kit: includes everything to do the job, and the parts were all top quality, and obviously everything fit perfectly. Couldn't be happier at any price, but considering it was about 1/3 of the dealer quote for parts, well, that's just crazy.

    Instructional video: this was easily THE BEST video I've ever seen for auto repair (or anything else for that matter). The clarity and level of detail was excellent. I watched it all the way through beforehand, and then just watched and paused while doing the job. When you're finished, you know you did everything 100% right.

    Tool kit: unless you happen to already have specialty tools like the crank lock tool and the tri-spanner, then this kit is absolutely essential for doing the timing belt service. Everything worked perfectly.
