Timing belt destruction

Rubber heats up, cools down, and stretches and the the cycle repeats. In the end the rubber just breaks off like in this case where the teeth came off the belt. In other cases the nylon braid in the belt itself tears. 

 

Own a VW or any other belt-driven engine?  Make sure this doesn't happen to you by following service intervals or finding a trusty service shop!
