Can anybody tell me what mileages the 2003 S3 Cambelt needs changing?
Pretty sure it's 60k / 5 years. Make sure the water pump is done at the same time.
If it's a 2003 then it should be due it's second replacement this year.
Indeed, just had mine done @ 93000 (52 plate) only 35000 miles since last done but was 5 years ago. Not worth the risk.
Every 5 years or between 50 and 60k.
and fit the complete kit, the hyd tensioner is the ONLY thing that keeps the belt under tension, if it fails the valves have lunch in the pistons kitchen
