The 2007 fsi has a belt, not a chain. Later tsi engines have chains.

it has a BELT,NOT A CHAIN...Recommended replacement 120,000 miles, normal driving conditions. Water pump driven by timing belt. It is recommended that you consider changing the water pump when replacing the belt.>>>>>>( Interference engine)<<<<<<
