So my cousin is looking to buy a MK4 TDI (ALH engine) and some of the ones he's checked out so far all have questionable service records, especially as far as the timing belt. He's a capable mechanic and is quite familiar with diesels but he and his family are living in a temporary residence and he doesn't have a great work space, nor all his tools. I figure there has to be someone in Victoria that has some timing belt tools to loan/rent so he doesn't have to go buy a set. Anyone that has some, please PM me or email me at edmurr01(@)gmail.com

Alright my cousin purchased the TDI and it definitely needs the timing belt done! He's already ordered a complete TB kit and is awaiting delivery but he still needs the tools to do the job. I know the TDI membership out this way isn't online very often but somebody in the Victoria area must have some TB tools they'd be willing to lend or rent.

I would lend you mine Ed but I cant find it.Nothing like misplacing hundreds of dollars worth of specialty tools... F.. kris at vm auto he rents them out with deposit... I can pick them up and mail them to you if you need..

I can lend you mine, as long as you would be responsible for them. (I know I can trust you, and I have been ripped off several times, so I don't trust everyone anymore.)

Thanks for the replies. Apparently he's already managed to locate the tools and did the job today so all is good.
Lars, I can understand where you're coming from. And thanks for the kind words. Let me know if I can help you out sometime, just to repay your offer to let me borrow the tools.
glitdi thanks for the tip, I'll keep that in mind for future reference
