    Water pump/viscus fan!

    Hi this is my 1st post... I was wondering if anyone else has had the same problem as me... I've got an Audi Allroad 2003 2.5tdi, my attention was drawn to the noise coming from under the bonnet and poor economy after taking it to the garage it appears that the fan does not disconnect after starting an is only permenantly. Has anyone else experienced this? If so how was it remedied? The only thing the garage could say was to replace both units at the same time as the timing belt

    Don't know about the fan - could it be a sensor rather than replacment needed? Did the garage do a full fault code check?
    However, if the timing belts get replaced definatly replace water pump at same time as they tend to go and the belts have to come off the get access and timing belt change itself is a rather big job. Also change tensioners/idlers etc.
