2.0T Gen 1 TSI Upper Timing Chain Kit - Deluxe - Includes updated timing chain tensioner
This is our intermediate timing chain kit for the Gen 1 TSI 2.0T. This kit includes all of the parts necessary to replace your upper timing chain assembly. We typically install this kit when updating the timing chain tensioner for a customer as the original chains are usually stretched and/or worn by that point in time.
Please keep in mind that this kit only includes the parts necessary for performing an upper timing chain replacement. If you're interested in replacing all of the timing chain components on your engine, please check out our Super Deluxe 2.0T Gen 1 TSI Timing Chain Kit.
This Kit Includes:
- 06K109467K - Genuine VW/Audi upper timing chain tensioner (the most updated revision)*
- 06K109158AD - Upper timing chain assembly (high quality Febi Bilstein or OEM)
- 06H103483C - Victor Reinz or Elring upper timing chain cover gasket
- 06H103483D - Victor Reinz or Elring upper timing chain cover magnet seal
- WHT001760 - Genuine VW/Audi crankshaft bolt**
- 06H109509Q - Upper left chain guide rail
- 06H109469AP - Upper right timing chain guide rail
- 06H109469T - Upper timing chain guide rail
In our experience, some of the following parts should absolutely be replaced when doing updating either the tensioner or installing a new upper chain. However, we also realize that not everyone is in the same situation and may already have certain parts in their possession. For this reason we list these parts as optional.
If you are looking to replace both the upper and lower timing chain assembly (which is not normally replaced), please see our super deluxe timing chain kit.
Please note that we only include the upper chain guides in this kit. If you are looking to replace the lower timing chain and its guides, please look at our super deluxe timing chain kit which includes both the lower timing chain and related guides.
Lower Timing Chain Cover
While some have gotten lucky and managed to remove this lower cover without damaging it, most of the time it will get bent in the process of removing it. If this cover is flexed the wrong way even in the slightest amount, it will not seal properly and cause an oil leak. More often than not, even if the cover looks ok, it's going to need to be replaced. Save yourself a future headache and replace this part while you're already there. This lower timing chain cover also includes new front main seal already pressed into the cover.
The lower timing chain cover is different depending on your production date:
- Up to 12/12/2011 - 06H109210AG
- From 12/13/2011 - 06K109210AF
If you're wondering why the price of the lower timing chain cover is higher than elsewhere online, it's because we include new hardware with the cover. The factory bolts are stretch type and are only designed to be installed once. In our experience, replacement of this hardware is necessary to ensure proper sealing of the lower timing chain cover.
If you select the option above to include new hardware, you'll receive the following in your kit:
- N91130401 - 2x for upper right guide rail
- N91130301 - 1x for upper left guide rail
- N10554005 - 2x for upper chain tensioner
When replacing the lower timing chain cover, it must be properly re-sealed. High quality Dirko RTV sealant is available as an option above. Please make sure you let the sealant cure for at least 30 minutes prior to filling your engine with oil and starting it.
Why isn't the lower chain in this kit?
You've probably seen a lot of kits online include the lower timing chain assembly. Since we perform timing chain services on a daily basis in our shops, we're a bit more knowledgeable than your average online store. From our experience, we know that unlike the upper chain, the lower chain does not typically stretch or irregularly wear. As a result, the lower chain does not usually require replacement. If you are in need of a timing chain kit that includes the lower chain and related guide rails, we recommend checking out our Super Deluxe Gen 1 TSI Timing Chain Kit.
Trust us, we're the experts
When comparison shopping online, check to make sure the company selling the parts you're looking to purchase actually installs them as well. As we have installed many customer supplied timing chain kits over the years, we've noticed that many other companies will often either sell you extra parts that aren't needed (chain guides) or don't include parts necessary to complete the job (crankshaft bolt). Most of the time, this is simply because the company selling the parts is not an actual shop. Unlike many of these other online retailers, we actually install the parts we list online. This means that we will only send you high quality parts that are tried and trusted.
Please note: This kit is intended for use on Gen 1 2.0T TSI engines only. *More than likely, this tensioner is probably the reason that you're performing this service on your vehicle. In our experience, we only trust OEM VW/Audi tensioners as we have seen issues with cheaper alternatives. **This is a stretch bolt from the factory, and only designed to be torqued to spec once. Failure to replace this bolt can lead to catastrophic failure.
