    Hi everyone I purchased my Audi just under a year ago with the two years free servicing, my car has just gone over 80,000 miles so is due a cambelt change. Is this covered under the free servicing???

    I'd say if it's in the service booklet then it should be covered, just like an air/fuel filter are....

    I think if you check the book cambelt replacement is classed as 'additional to normal service' applicable at certain mileage.

    I was done over by a similar deal when I owned a Clio, I think it's out order and they should put it clearer in writing what is and what's not covered

    Wear and tear like pads, so highly doubtful.

    I think you've got more chance of platting piss than getting your local dealership to pay for a cambelt change lol

    Oil doesnt really wear down to the point of no oil like say a brake pad would.

    So no
