    2.0 TFSI cambelt change??

    I'm looking at a used 2006 car with 90k, the belt has not bgeen done. I was initially alarmed, but then when i did the research, i found what the selling indy dealer had told me, ie that these do not require compulsory changing until 180000km (115,000M ). (that was from Audi themselves!)
    Has ANYONE had theirs long enough to take it up to this sort ofmileage? I thought it sounded a bit risky, as most engines require it by 80k.
    Advice pls. I'm thinking about pushing the dealer to get it and ythe pulleys changed as a precautionary measure

    Thanks in advance

    states in my manual 60k or every 5 years for my 2.0t-fsi quattro.
    and when a rang around for quotes for servicing earlier this year all three Audi dealers reminded me it was due at 60k or 5 years!

    115K is Audi's official time to change the belt for the TFSI engine, looking at my service schedule.

    But most people get it done way before that (60-80K) purely for peace of mind or paranoia!

    If belt goes before then and its been well serviced then Audi would have to fix it free of charge, I would imagine!

    My car is 2005. How old is yours antmax7?

    It definitely states 115K in my service book! They must have revised that for later models

    *Edit* there are disclaimers in the Service schedule - More frequent replacement is required on some models. Please ask you dealer for further information.

    Also - Worked discribed here is correct at the time of going to print.

    Belt will last 100k but the other components wont allways last that long ! Change all bearings/tensioners and water pump while at it so you dont have any surprises...

    I've just had my cambelt and water pump changed by Audi on my 05 reg 2.0TFSI. This was based on the car being 5 years old (mileage is stil way under 60K) They're doing the cambelt for 349 and water pump for circa 100 for car over 3 years old. I thought that was a pretty good deal and wouldn't want to risk trashing the engine by not having it done!
