I would definently Replace the timeing chain before it breaks. because if it does break when its running it will cause catasrophic failure. such as bending valves and possibly breaking a piston. every so many miles your chain should be replaced as with the belts. it is a safty precaution. A little money spent now will save you a lot later.
hope this is what you were looking for.

SOURCE: cambelt or chain
Your 2005 VW Golf has a timing belt and not a chain.
Most importantly, your VW has what's called an interference engine.
If th eblt breaks, it will allow the valve to collide with the pistons and you will have major damage.
Be very careful to replace the belt on or before the manufacturer's recommended replacement interval.
VW originally recommended 60k miles or 5 years but that in 2004 or 2005 they changed that to 40k miles or 3 years after seeing belts (and therefore pistons and valves) go pop after about 45k.

take it to the dealer ,you cannot do it yourself because no wiring exists ,only computer bus lines ,the camera has to be programmed into the circuit with a code and frequency .also keep mobile phone away from centre console or you will activate by interference the immobilisor
