    Timing belt 1.9

    Just been to audi to get my temp sender, and decided to get a price on getting my timing belt done by them.

    All the part came in to about 260 inc vat, then a couple of hundred for labour.
    but the nice man at audi said they would do the whole job inc water pump, and aux belt for £500

    which I thought was a really good price. So I think il be getting that done soon

    I can't do it myself as I don't have the experience. But I've looked about and there's no vag specialists around my area.
    Il keep looking but if I can't find anywhere il just get audi to do it.

    I thought 500 wasn't bad from audi tbf. Yeah I would like it to be cheaper.

    I sourced all my bits from ecp. Cam belt & tensioner, 2 x aux belts & tensioner, water pump & coolant for £170. My local garage fitted for £150. I felt £320 all in was a good price and it runs silky smooth. Well, smooth for a diesel!

    £500 from Audi main dealer sounds ok but be sure to insist this price includes both cambelt and aux belt tensioners, not just the belts.

    Ps admin - paid for a sticker but no show yet. Can someone check this please. Thanks Mark.

    I can do a 4 cyl cambelt in 3 hours, parts are just shy of 150 trade prices...
    In this day and age you need to be competitive better to not have time than having to much not being busy !

    Out of curiosity would you recommend to do the torsion value straight after the belt change or after its stretched and worn in a bit.

    I ask because people have mixed response to this. Would you go about doing it twice; once after the change and then again after couple of hundred miles later?

    they say closest to 0 is best

    but I have also heard each car is different and is supposed to be on the data sticker on the cam belt cover but I'm yet to see this
