    new member needs help

    hi all, i bought my 2001 audi a4 2.5tdi 180bhp 2 weeks ago with 75000miles on the clock.

    i'm going to do the timing belt myself as i've been reading there due at the 80k mark. (will be doing waterpump, idlers, aux belts - the lot with a full service)

    i've done a number of timing belts before but i've read they are quite tricky on these engines

    just spent the last few hours looking for a guide with pictures and have had no luck

    does anyone know any links for timing belt replacement for this engine with pictures?
