Q:

Timing Belt and engine type on 1996 Volkswagen Cabrio

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
The timing belt in my 96 VW cabrio broke and I'm trying to decide if it's worth fixing. Can anyone tell me if it is an interference or non-interference engine?
Thanks

My reference show that it's an interference engine. Very likely there's significant internal damage to the engine. You may do well to check out a guaranteed used engine and put a new timing belt and water pump on it before it goes into the car.
