Asked that the water pump and all 'belts" be replaced plus all relevant bits.

Replaced all belts, tensioners and water pump but not the Crank pulley stretch bolt.

Am I right in thinking it is a must to replace?

Where can I find documentation to show the maccy?

Cheers::*

All decent mechs know to change this bolt or get ready for a warranty claim for failed bottom pulley:eek: I would never do a belt on the 2.5 without changing tensioner & bolt etc

I believe with the cambelt kit from vw this bolt is included..if so why would anyone buy these cheap kits on ebay ect .I have just had this done on my 2.5tdi my mechanic only uses vag kits..also had my 2.4d cambelt and crank pully replaced this kit from vw does not come with a bolt..because I am told the 2.4d bolt is not a stretch bold and is no longer available from vw since 2011...can anyone confirm this..
