    Water pump problem

    Hi,

    my 04 Quattro TDi avant has been losing coolant.

    It seems there is a a problem and the water pump will be replaced under warranty. The car is at 36,000 and as they are stripping down the car thay said they can do my timing belt early for 140. Parts only as the labour will be covered by the water pump under the audi guarantee.

    Is this a good deal?

    YES.

    Might be able to haggle a few quid off if you're persistent.
    Cam Belt = 41.00
    Roller = 48.71
    Ribbed Belt = 16.09.

    Those are prices from previous financial year so they might have gone up a bit.

    I can't think of anything else that goes into it?

    Thanks Mate,

    I'll see what I can do as it seems to be about 35 more expensive given the prices your quoting but they are saving me a heap on labour as I've seen the Cambelt roller and ribbed belt change quoted on here at 350-500!!!!

    Well it was actually the sane as quoted for the parts above + VAT took it to 140.00

    Not bad for all that work to be done and that should be me with pump and belts till 80K- fingers crossed.

    Cheers guys
