Looking for a garage near Darlington/Newton Aycliffe
« on: April 10, 2019, 07:07:11 PM »
About to pick up a mk5 golf gti. It's got service history with oil changes etc. Last cambelt change done 2011 at 71,000 miles. It's now got 110,000 miles.
I'm looking for an independent garage who are used to mk5s.
As a precaution I'm thinking cambelt, water pump and cam follower change.
Any thoughts or suggestions?

Contact ACR (Andrew Outhwaite) he's near Croft circuit.

He's an indy VAG specialist.

Don't think he has a website but his FB is https://www.facebook.com/ACR-125904530818797/

I changed only the cambelt and the water pump, Didn't think about the cam follower though, thanks for bringing this up. Weirdly enough it's the first time I hear about Andrew Outhwaite, but thanks for the recommendation.
