    cambelt replacement - what parts are required?

    i've had a few quotes for this and so far its from Ł500 to Ł650.

    4 rings told me that theres alot of important parts to change but i ddint catch most of it over the phone.
    can you tell me what they are please?

    Audi Chingford are doing a special offer - Ł499 inc parts and labour and an extra Ł70 if you want the water pump sorted. im waiting for them to call me back re parts.

    4 rings quoted Ł650 including a huge list of parts - inc thermostat.

    and an independant specilist quoted Ł580 exc water pump.

    what i want to know if whats important and what isnt - as this is a pricy job!!

    Hi there if its a 2.5 tdi then i would do this lot. Full cambelt kit, tensioners, rollers, pump belt, injector belt + tensioner, aux. drivebelt, Thermostat, water pump with metal impeller and 5L of g12 antifreeze + computerized setting of the diesel pump/ diagnostic test also If the car is high milleage i suggest you replace the hydraulic damper next to the cambelt tensioner, bit pricey but they im told they can fail with high mileage. hope this helps

    Nah, it was from a really good indie. I wouldn't let a main dealer touch my car anyway.

    If I had it done from Audi (Talking about the offer that Stafford Audi have), then will they replace all parts listed by swarcup minus the thermo and waterpump (which I can get done at extra cost).... all the belts and tensioners he mentioned, will they be replaced?

    Audi Portsmouth completed my Cambelt change.

    They did the Cambelt + waterpump and quoted me Ł610.00. That was for all tensioners and belts etc. The only problem was that the Hydraulic tensioner (not part of the cambelt kit) was leaking, so Audi replaced it as well for an extra Ł160.

    I had a service done at the same time, all in all it cost me Ł1047.00

    At least I get a 2 year unlimited mileage warranty and peace if mind.

    Booked in for Stafford Audi on Monday... Ł395 for cambelt and tensioners on the 2.5 v6 tdi, and Ł70 for the waterpump.

    Only thing is, car is up on autotrader aswell, and a guy made an offer without the cambelt done... well he better buy it before Monday...
