Search "golf 7 tdi timing belt change".
Don't worry about engine code as long it is a 7(mk7). 1.6 and 2.0 engines have same procedure as far as I can tell.

EA288 is the family, CRUA and CVCA are models in that family

Roger that, thanks for the info. TDI extended warranty won't cover the failed water pump at 47k miles unless I overheat the engine and throw a CEL. Or pay $1800 for water pump and timing belt. Looks like I'm doing it myself. Should have never sold my ALH.

I did my wife's CRUA last year, easy peasy, but I had done multiple BEW/BRM timing belts before that.

The worst in these news cars is the amount of brackets you'll have to undo, and then do back at the end....and the lack of space due to the dual overhead cam.

One last thing to consider: if you've ever think of replacing the CP4 HPFP for a CP3, this is the moment, at a timing belt change.

I'll probably do that fuel pump swap at the next timing belt when the warranty is up along with a larger turbo and delete. Thanks for the heads up!

Who told you that? The leaking water pump on our hatchback is being replaced under the Dieselgate extended warranty, as it is a part of the long block assembly, which is covered...
