    A4 2.8 30v Timing Belt Change

    I've got a coolant leak which i think is coming from the either the water pump or thermostat housing (until i get the car up on ramps i can't get a good look at where its starting).
    So from reading on here that i have to get the belt off to change the both or either of these i wondered what everyone advised should be changed once its in bits.

    Belt
    Tensioner
    Thermostat and gasket
    Water Pump (possibly if its leaking or is it worth doing anyway?)

    ...anything else i should do whilst i'm there?

    Do the water pump anyway, you DON'T want to have to do that job twice.

    Water pump is a no brainer for the reasons in your post.

    Remember you will need the proper locking tool to fit the belt, and get the full kit that replaces everything.
