    2.5 v6 thermostat

    2.5 v6 tdi qs 180 engine is ake and am looking to change the thermostat but i have one question can you actually replace it without removing any of the belts, i mean can you access it even with a bit of wiggling and poking, i say this because it needs one, but the cam belt etc all have 40,000 miles left in them, obviously it wasnt changed when the previous owner had the canbelt done, just thinking i am more than capable of doing this if i dont have to start removing all the belts.

    already done the sender and it made no difference the guage still sits at around 70
    although when towing a caravan it gets to 90 when accelerating but then drops right back to 70 so im pretty sure the guage is ok aswell
    can only be the thermostat i think unless there is something else?

    You need to remove the LH Side camshaft pulley and the belt needs slacking of the tensioner. Audi manual says that it can be done without removing the belt but, i never (could) do-it that way ! There is no way i could take the housing off to pull the stat as its easy to damage the belt ! While its in pieces, refit a new belt or-at least - fit a new kit if its due ! Its a fairly involved job and pray and mark jobs are a no/no !...also the injector pump needs to come off wich requires timing back so, if you dont know what you're doing, leave-it to a proffesional ! I am in N. London and i could help you- if you fancy a drive !
