Review: Metalnerd Common Rail Timing Belt Tools

Metalnerd tools, made by Charles Meglio, have the go to place for aftermarket VW timing belt tools and custom tools for years. I have been using their tools in my shop for over 4 years now and have been delighted at the quality and finish of these tools and how they have stood up to use and abuse. I’m not one to be easy on my tools either.


That is why I am pleased to release this first video review on the CR timing belt took kit that they offer. It is a high quality kit with all of the tools needed to change you timing belt and some updates over the factory VW tools to make life easier.

If you would like to purchase this kit you can find it here or visit the homepage to see all of the tools they offer for VW, Audi, and Porsche vehicles.

I have been working with Chuck to produce a series of videos using Metalnerd products for reviews and in action. Tools such as this timing belt kit showing you how to change a CR timing belt, their injection pump tamper proof socket, Crank Yank, and more.  And in the future he will have a special free gift from VWDiesel to everyone who buys any of his awesome Metalnerd products which I am pretty excited about.


If you liked this video and have any special request for future reviews or guides or want to know about anything Metalnerd as to offer drop us a line or leave it on our comment section and I will be glad to help.
