Amarok v fence posts
« on: May 18, 2019, 07:04:10 pm »
Hi all,

Planned on spending today digging holes to concrete posts for a new fence at home.


One hole in I get a phone call from my son to announce that his car has broken down, 2014 Amarok.


Pack up, grab some tools and head out to see whats heís done. He said battery and ems lights came on along with rattle from engine. I know what it is, i knew it would catch him out.

At 125000kms, his cam belt lasted 25000kms longer than i told him it would.

So now, on top of all my other jobs im looking at a top end rebuild on his Amarok, lucky me......

Iíll start collecting parts now, until I can find time to get into it.

Last VW i had the head off was his Mk3 golf, I suspect  this will be a bit trickier.

I would normally go to ebay, unless anyone can recommend a local supplier for head set, valves and belts here in Auckland?

Any special tools im likely to need?

Thanks all


Phil ( going for a beer now )

to be fair, might be easier finding a replacement engine?
