    no i dont know,the bloke who i bought the car from said he only had the car just over a year and isnt sure whether its been changed he said it looks as if the timing case has been off but he cant guarantee its been changed and as the service history he gave me is a loada **** basically no service sheets just the stamped book and a copy of the cars service history off of vw's database then i dont really know whats been done to it,he works at Vw with my mate,so its all legit but no service papers really,so i am lloking to get the belt done just incase really,i can get the parts for dirt cheap as my friend works for vw so i may as well get it changed soon hadnt i?

    I would also get the water pump looked at too, they are a common point of failure.
