Here's a link related to tsi timing info.

There is actually a good thread in the DIY section that just got made about timing chains. I'll be adding to it hopefully Sunday since i'm starting my chains tomorrow. The DAP video on the tensioner is definitely the best one for getting to the actual chains, then I posted another video that shows chains, tensioner, and guide getting changed very clearly with good explanation. I'm gonna try to remember all the torque values used and put them in the post so people don't have to dive into the manuals to pull them out.

This PDF guide on the tensioner is a very good guide. Its very thorough:

This youtube video shows a complete chain replacement on an Audi TSI. Longitudinal but same concept.

I also followed the ELSA manual instructions. These were my 3 most used resources when I did my chain.

In 2014, post #374, my car suffered the timing chain issue, which cost me a couple of thousand dollars to fix. Recently a friend mentioned the class action against VW, and after a quick search I contacted Steve Webster at Webster Book to get more information. He was able to submit a claim to VW, and after a few week they were able to get VW to repay me the cost of the fix. Recommend talking to them if the repair bill wasn't your only expense, or the issue happen after 60k miles - like mine. Also, VW pays for their fee.

Anyone know of there's a class action for the same in Canada?

I have the bad tensioner in my car 2012 gti dsg and I'm getting it replaced hopefully this week. I have 72k miles on my car now. Will VW still repay me fore the repairs and how do I go about claiming it if so?

Documents evidencing the Settlement Class Member's good-faith adherence to the relevant aspects of the vehicle maintenance schedule during the time he/she owned the Settlement Class Vehicle, in particular, scheduled oil changes, up to the date/mileage of repair/replacement, within a variance of 10% of the scheduled time/maintenance requirements (e.g. if oil changes are required for your vehicle every 5,000 miles, you must have had the oil change no later than 500 miles past the recommended oil change requirement). However, in the event maintenance records cannot be obtained despite a good-faith effort to obtain them, the Settlement Class Member may submit a sworn declaration detailing what efforts were made to obtain the records, why the records are not available, and attesting to adherence to the vehicle maintenance schedule and, in particular, scheduled oil changes, up to the date/mileage of replacement/repair, within the variance set forth above. You can download and print the Vehicle Maintenance Declaration document here.
Well that's gonna be fun...

Looks like the best I'm gonna get back is gonna be about 40 or 50% of $1650. I'll take it, but I don't really document my oil changes, so that part kinda worries me.

Thanks. I was using my local library online Chilton's manual (which sucks but is free). Glad you shared this.

All these post about vwoa maybe passing people back sounds like a lot of hassle and would rather just do it myself at this point. Doesn't look hard, just time consuming and I'm in no rush.

My valves didn't kiss the pistons, so all I need to do is literally a timing chain job.

What's y'all's thought on just replacing the actual tensioner and reuseing the chain? It shipped about 5 teeth but doesn't look damaged

It's really not bad, just triple check everything is lined up and you'll be good.

Well at this point you can't be reimbursed since today is the cut off date. I'm guessing VW will just replace it for you for free now, but still waiting for their announcement I think...supposed to be a statement from them today.

Got a thread going on the GTI subreddit

https://www.reddit.com/r/GolfGTI/com...vice_writer_i/

So far it seems like there are two options...

1. Your tensioner failed and you had it fixed prior to 8/28. They will reimburse you if you provide all of the necessary paperwork.
2. Your tensioner has NOT failed yet. You have until 100k miles/10 years for it to fail and have your busted engine fixed.

Unbelievable. Thanks for everything VW. Bunch of hacks.

Dove into this yesterday after finding out it is up and running. 23 pictures and one long word document containing my service history mapped out have been submitted. Maybe now I will be one of the first few to get compensated I did self oil changes and just provided proof of oil and filter purchases. I had to only be missing like one oil filter I couldn't find to be linked to an oil change.
