keeping a very long story short, does anybody know much about pulley wear or any other issue which could cause a cambelt to go two weeks after being replaced?
Basically, the belt went at 143k miles, technically wasn't due until 155k if you believe Audi, i had all the work done, then it went again two weeks later. The car is in the process of being repaired but I'm concerned there may be something else wrong which could've caused it, hence the question.
So could there be wear on the pulleys? Is there any guidance on when they should be checked, or that they should be replaced with a cambelt change after a certain mileage? Or is pulley wear unheard of up to a certain mileage on these cars?
FYI, the first belt had a load of teeth ripped off it, put down to old age, and I'm being told the second one has too.
Any info or help appreciated.
