You many not have been following threads on ALH cam wear over the past several years but the the Zippy thread is here. Zippy discovered her cam issue at the April'06 HO5G's GTG. Remember now, the ALH engine was thought to be a 400,000 mile motor ...so-said. What Zippy pointed out during her investigation was certain years [2002 mainly] had some flawed cam metallurgy. That alerted others owning models 2001's-2003's to start pulling valve covers and inspecting cams. Meanwhile these replacement "cams" came way down in price at VW suddenly?40X40 said:The links and pics you posted here are not a 2006 BRM, they are of a 2002? Golf??
Does this mean you have had to replace cams in two of your cars? (2002 and a 2006?)
Sorry, just a bit confused by your posts.
