    D.I.Y

    Hey there,
    I just bought 01 s3 at the wekend and the cam belt needs replacing fairly soon. Im a mechanic but i was just wondering has anybody changed one themselves before.
    Id be greatfull for any tips. Looks like a tight squeeze.
    Is there any locking pins required so on.

    Thanks Folks.

    I don't see a problem with DIY if you are a mechanic tbh, you just need to take the engine mount off to get to it, and support engine with a trolley jack of some sort which you should know anyway. Just make sure you change tensioners and get yourself a new waterpump from GSF, and request for the fully metal one, as your current one is made of plastic!
