    Cam belt change time

    Right I am ringing around to get prices to change the cam belt on my S3 as its due a changing.
    Firstly prices vary wildly! but thats not wht I am after

    Ive decided to price the bits on vag parts but Im not sure exactly what I need and they dont do waterpumps either!

    I know I need the belt obviously, but they list two types of tensioner and a damper??

    Try GSF http://www.gsfcarparts.com/ I got my belt kit (belt, tensioner and idler) for about 70 quid, also got waterpump from there for about 25 quid. They also do G12 Coolant for 5 quid a bottle, you'll need 2.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    I would use GSF again.......great service and good prices all OEM equivalent, some even have identical casting marks, just in diff boxes!

    Change everything........all rollers, belt, tensioners, ( ask for the kit with the the hydraulic tensioner thingy) waterpum, get the metal impeller one if you can (brass). It was about 150 quid for it all IIRC, but just not worth all the labour and not change things.
