The cam shaft is normally fine but they say the screen get stuck in there, that's why they replace. There is the odd time when a cam lob will spin out of place when the valves bend but not common.

I'm in the process of rebuilding my TSI engine as well,... slow but sure.

Vwoa is covering 75% of parts and labor! 2013 gti with 70k miles. Screen broke , went into camshaft (lost), timing Chain jumped, tensioner shot, cylinder head scorned. Very happy with what was once a $6800 quote, now being covered heavily out of warranty by goodwill!

Congratulations

EDIT: Our engine in our Tiguan broke at roughly the same milage as yours but VW Canada won't cover it, less than 2 months after the car was serviced at VW Dealer at the time, so sitting in my garage and I've been doing a bit at a time eventually I get it completed. We won't buy another VW, but still working Tuning them, actually easier to tune a 2.0 TSI to Stage 1 than the 2.5.

I'd say that's a pretty good outcome

Not much more than a tensioner swap job! I'd take that as a win. Still crappy that it happened and that it happened without warning but 1700 is a lot better than 6800.

I've never been so relieved. This put a major amount of stress on me the past 10 days! Massive kudos to VWoA for coming through in the clutch! Really makes me appreciate the brand!

Grats man! Sucks it happened to begin with but at least they did something for you out of warranty.

Hey there. I have the same problem and am wondering how do I get ahold of VWoA and try to hold them accountable? That's great that you got them to cover the job. Any advice appreciated, thanks a lot.

I am also dealing with catastrophic engine failure on my 2010 from timing chain tensioner failing @ 100k miles. Like GreggGTI asked, any suggestions? Who I can call at VWoA? I am probably SOL being a 2010 owner but I will curse the name of VW forever if a manufacturer mistake causes me thousands of dollars.
