    Aux/Drive belt

    The auxillery belt needs changing on my A3. Are these fairly simple to do yourself? I did one on my mk4 fiesta years ago.

    Its a 1.9TDI with air con.

    Yeah it should be fairly easy it will have an auto tensioner which needs to be pushed back and realeases the tension off the belt then its old one off and new one on obviously remembering which way it goes lol. You will need a suitable size spanner for the tensioner not sure what size and you might have to take other things off for access on my 1.8t i had to take the throttle body off but this wont be an issue on a diesel hope this helps.

    I got mine from a motor factors my mate owns so anywhere like gsf or eurocarparts they might not be much from the dealers so thats worth a try.
