    Question 3.0 V6 Cambelt Chnage...

    Does anyone the correct time interval for a cambelt change on a A4 3.0 V6 Quattro Sport..

    Mine is a 52' plate 2002 model with 52k on the clock!

    Some dealers are saying 80k others are saying 80k or 5 years...

    Cheers

    Have just called Audi Tech Support and they say cambelt is due at 80k... Dealers should not be saying 80k or 5 years...

    What do you guys think??

    AFAIK, VAG are saying a max of 5 years for all cambelts regardless of mileage.

    Personally I'd get it done for peace of mind and if you're planning on selling the car it's a plus point to any potential buyer.

    Prices ranged from £750.00 to over £1000 from Bexley Audi!

    Don't know how they can to that figure!

    Thats is complete thievery by the main stealers....they really are taking the p*ss....

    Find a good independent ! Should get change out of 300 just for the belt, but for peace of mind get waterpump & tensioners changed at the same time I reckon BUT make ssur ethey use genuine Audi parts not any pattern sh*t...

    Good advice, cheers. £1k for a cambelt is grand larceny!
