    Cambelt Change

    I am due a cambelt change on my 1.9tdi.

    Any idea how much a cambelt kit costs from audi (or any other supplier you can recommend)?

    Is there anything else i should change at the same time as the cambelt?

    Thanks in advance

    You need to get the water pump done too.

    From the top of my head -

    Cam belt kit 88.00
    Water Pump 29.87
    You will need new coolant too G12 I think 5.99

    I had mine done last week, Audi were quoting 490.00 so I got it done at an independant by me for 330.00 which I didn't think was too bad.

    You may need new tensioners too.

    Vagparts.co.uk have always been reliable for me.

    If you don't have the car I'm not sure I'd be getting it done.
    I'm an optimist but I don't think it helps much.

    Don't worry mate i didn't, was looking at buying one today, it was due a service and cam belt change so thought id find out how much it woul set me back. Didn't buy it in the end.

    Is that the going price, 700 quid for a cam belt for a 3.0 v6 quattro sport from Audi? How much would you expect to pay from non franchise garage??

    It might be worth trying other Audi dealers in your area.
    I know Staffords Audi Franchise dealer is offering a cambelt including tensioner on the V6 for 395 +vat

    They are advertising it on ebay.

    Well ive just bought the kit from Preston Audi (near where i work), and the cambelt, tensioners etc and the waterpump came to 187 i think. The waterpump has a surcharge on it of 40, but once you return the old waterpump in the box for the new one, you get your 40 back.

    My dads mate does them locally, he said if i get the kit from audi (as above), he'll do it and charge about 150 for the labour, and include 1 years warranty.
