    Any1 know a rough cost on having the cambelt and water pump changed? It's a 2008 with 35k miles so the 5 years is up and don't think it's been done yet. Cheers

    Hmm that's not too bad 👍 I read a lot of problems occurring once it's been changed tho ! Anything too watch out for ?

    I just got the parts for mine tonight:

    cambelt kit inc idlers and tensioner
    waterpump
    aux belt
    aux tensioner
    thermostat

    cost me £200. Hoping to have the lot fitted for about £150? It doesnt look too hard a job to be honest going from the guides I saw. Was going to do it myself but think it looks better having a garage do it. Plus no scope of mess ups!

    think they do a fixed price for 450 odds but doesnt include waterpump/aux belt or aux tensioner from memory.

    Not cheap but a peace of mind getting it done by Audi.
    At least the parts will be under warranty :)
