    Recently had a timing belt fail in my vehicle and have a few questions regarding this matter.

    First off, what are the chances that there are no valves damaged and the engine may still be ok? Second, any information regarding removing the timing belt would be greatly appreciated. The (rear) timing belt is missing a few teeth,, i simply cut and removed that belt. The front belt is still in good condition, however I cannot figure how to remove. There is no tensioner pully ect..ect..

    Mind you the vehicle was in motion at the time of the belt failure :wtc:

    I can only hope for the best i suppose.

    Thanks for the help.

    Well if it's an interference motor the chances are slim, but if it’s a non-interference then you’re fine. One way to tell is trying to turn the cam gears by hand slowly. If it real had then there could be valve train damage.



    I did a search on Google and 944 Turbos do indeed have interference motors:

    Most of the time usually there is valve train damage but some VW guys that lose timing belts with interference motors come out very luck with no harm at all.


    Search on Google for more information
