    timing belt\\water pump renewal

    Hi

    noob seeking some advice

    i've put my 98 A4 1.8T in for a service at a non audi garage in london
    its got a whining noise coming from the water pump and they have suggested
    that i get the timing belt done at the same time but they are charging seperate
    labour for fitting the belt and the pump. when i rang audi for a quote
    the 1st thing they said was that threre was no extra labour for the pump without
    me even asking.
    is this right ?

    WARNING BEWARE White Rose Motors in london
    got knocked for 470+VAT for timimg belt and waterpump.
    what makes it worse is that i got a cheeper quote
    from an audi stealer after i gave them the go ahead to do the
    work(doh). and i still have to go back cos they used cheap'n'cheerfull
    spark plugs not the audi longlife that i requested.
    i wonder what else they skimped on ? i requested synthetic oil
    does it make any difference if you switch between petroleum based and
    synthetic oils ?

    Sorry to hear that, I had a case like this with a local body shop [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/burningmad.gif[/img]

    Feel better as lost him a fair bit of business through word of mouth [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/****_you.gif[/img]

    Might be an idea to copy the above post in the dealer and specialist section so it doesn't get forgotten.
