Mk4 polo cambelt snapped

Recommended Posts

Hi all, just purchased a nice mk4 polo, all seemed fine, just had a fresh mot, no advisories. Anyway on the way home, the cambelt has snapped whilst I was doing about 65, I'm just wondering whether it is viable to fix it or if it is a gonner, and what's the least amount of things I'm gunna have to change.

 

Cheers ollie

if going to repair need head or your one re conned (not cheap) and head gasket set and timing belt kit. unlucky fella not the cheapest or easiest thing to repair
