Transmission has to be removed for any work carried out on timing chain, but the tensioner has been the problem before for me and it can be changed easly. If tensioner is removed for inspection make sure that if it is ok that you empty oil from tensioner by inserting 0.8mm wire through drill hole then compress plunger. If there isn't a drill hole just insert as is.
$0 It does a VR6 has no timing belt. Rick
This is the timing belt, I think. Takes a lot of expertise. Get the shop manual. If you screw it up, you can damage the engine.
The diesel has a belt and the petrol engine has a chain.

Yes you can. They can handle a super charger as well.

The GLX is the fully loaded V6 model with 4motion. The GLS comes with a variety of add on options, but still not as equiped as the GLX. And the GL is just very basic... No leather, no power, no toys at all.
look on the door jam of your vehicle or on the door itself
It is located on the front right side of the engine slightly underneath it
Trouble code P0112 means:Intake air temperature circuit low input
4 cylinder will have two engine mounts and one transmission mount
The shift knob should turn and loosen to the left. By turning this to the left it will loosen and come off, then put the new on and turning to the right until it's firm.
Tire pressures for ALL makes and models are on the inside of the drivers door jam.
i also own a 96 passat GLX VR6 and it is alot of work to change the alternator in a vr6 you pretty much have to take the front of the car off you need to remove the headlights to get to the raidator then you have to remove the radator to get to the alternator from there its a pretty simple process you need to remove the belt from the alternator then remove the bolts that hold it on and put the new one on and use a screwdriver to replace the belt onto your new alternator then you have to put the whole front of the car back on hope that helps
THERE IS A SENSOR ON THE FRONT AND REAR BRAKE PADS ITS TIME TO HAVE YOUR BRAKES SERVICED
The oil dipstick is located in the engine compartment on the front of the engine. The oil dipstick handle is yellow.
Sounds like one of your door switches is bad.
Your sunroof has a drain tube that needs relocated, I think there was a recall on this... Same thing happened on my 2004 GLX..
Turn the headlight switch clockwise, then pull out the switch. An owner's manual is a good thing to read.
Trouble code P0137 means:O2 sensor circuit low voltage (Bank 1 Sensor 2)
Remove the front bumper cover.... there should be 3 mounting bolts to remove the headlight after the bumper is removed.
