In the majority of V6 engines of the Volkswagen group and some 4 cylinder engines of Vauxhall/Opel, the thermostat sits behind the timing belt drive system. It is best practice to include the replacement of these difficult-to-reach thermostats in the timing belt drive overhaul. Gates PowerGrip® kits with application-specific thermostat and water pump help installers to avoid costly comebacks and unsatisfied customers.
