I bought my audi a4 1.8se (1995 N) a little while back, its done 85000. I don't think it has had its cam belt changed so I see that as a priority. Audi are telling me I need to buy a modified cambelt, along with the modified tensioners and damper. This comes to about £180 just for the parts. Does anyone know what they mean by modified cam belt and tensioners? My local mechanic usually charges about £60 labour for a cam belt change and he said not to worry about the tensioners, he will tell me if i need them.
Anybody have any ideas on what i should do? I dont want to go to audi as they charge near £500 for the cambelt change.
