Cam belt replacement due. Do I get water pump as well? (5 year old low mileage)
My Audi is soon due a service and MOT. It's a 56 plate Audi A4 Avant Sline SE 2 litre petrol.
My service and MOT is due in August 2011 and as part of the deal I'm in I get it for £99.
However, although only done 43000 miles or so, it's 5years old and so is now due a cam belt change. Although sure it would be fine,I do have an AA warranty (for what it’s worth) and therefore would rather do what I have to and Audi say the cam belt is due in Sept 2011.
They have offered me £399 price to do this which I am told is good for a cam belt from a main dealer. However they have also recommend I replace the water pump at the same time. They say this would normally cost a lot more as engine needs to be removed to get access, but they would do this at the same time for £520 in total.
- With my mileage, can I delay the actual cam belt, or just do it now anyway?
- If I do the cam belt, should I do water pump at the same time for the extra £120?
I welcome opinions on this. Thanks
- They also mentioned about removing bacteria from my air com. They say normally £120 but will do for £35. Worth it or gimmick?
