Having problems with your 2008 Volkswagen Passat Sedan ?

The timing belt on my Skoda Diesel has snapped at 55,000 miles. At the time when it snapped the engine bay was awash with diesel fuel due to a leaking fuel filter gasket. Fuel must have been leaking for about 1100 miles since the car was serviced. An independent engineer has inspected the belt at least 4 weeks after the event and states that he cannot find any diesel fuel contamination to the belt. Is it possibe that the diesel fuel has simply evaporated?

Quiet possible but, as the timing belt in fully enclosed i dont see how it would be contaminated...
