    I am in the process of getting quotes for a Cam Belt change and an 80,000 mile service.

    I have an Allroad 2.5 TDi 02 plate and i know that this work is going to cost me a few quid.

    I have just recieved this e-mail quote from an Independant Specialist who is quite local to me ......


    I bet they do " Hope to hear from me soon " ..... i don`t think so!:sadlike:


    Could anyone advise me of a Guide price for this work ?

    I have been quoted £400-£450 + VAT by another Specialist ( a bit more like it ) Is this about right?

    Thanks for any advice/Info.

    I would have thougt that the second price is about right seeing as its a V6 tdi.

    Did it on our V6 Tdi a couple of months ago!Monster job

    Because of the labour involved to get at the belts (Front bumper off, and radiators etc to one side to get access) YOU MUST change all the belts for the alternator,air con,injection pump and pulleys and most importantly the water pump!

    Cost me £400 just in bits and took 2 days as the main tensioner pulley for the cam belt was threaded and had to be re-tapped and pulley adjusted.

    Still saved though as Audi wanted £1000
