    Ive noticed theres like a timing belt at the front of the engine on the q7 3.0 tdi I wanted to know when this needs changing and if it ever snapped would this cause damage or is it just the pump timing ?

    It's not a timing belt ... it is auxiliary item belt (power steering, air con compressor, alternator, coolant pump)
