Hey guys, anyone know how much it would cost for a new timing chain?  And
also how much to have it installed?  Also how hard it is to do?  

Thanx guys!

I believe Nate will chime in on this as well, but it cost my factory
warranty about $909 for parts($364) and labor ($545) to have mine replaced.
If I'm reading the invoice right, it was 9 hours of labor (which equates to
~$60/hour!?!?!?).  There are people here that have done it on their own, I
believe, but it's not for me.

Luke's right.
Cost is high.
Wow, I'm surprised at the cost for parts.
Anyway, the upper chain is relatively easy but the lower chain requires removal of the
transmission from the motor.
So, if you plan on pulling out the tranny yourself then do it yourself.
I have a feeling you could pay your local mechanic less to do this job but while your in there you

may want to think about clutch (or if lightened flywheel was ever something you wanted to do this
may be the time).
So it will end up costing you more just b/c it's so easy to say, "while my tranny is out I might
as well do -FILL IN THE BLANK".
Anyway, 
Bottom line:  it's expensive but worth it if you replace the guides too.  No more chain chatter
(well, a little bit but much more quiet).
Let us know what you end up doing.
Later,
Nater

My 95 GTI has 111k on it, and it is time to think about having my
upper/lower chain redone (along w/ a clutch, cams, and flywheel).
Can someone provide me w/ a list of parts needed to redo all of this,
if you had part numbers that would be reeallly be cool.


for those of you in minneapolis, who should look into doing the work for me?

Hi Aaron -

Here's a spreadsheet with the parts from when did the chains, clutch (and
also had the head rebuilt, and replaced some of the cooling system
components).

Mine's a '96, but your '95 should be the same in this area.

Cheers,

Here is my list from my 93 Corrado. Should more or less be the same.
