    Hi all !
    I've got a 3.0 v6 b6 avant that's done 65k ! Just wondering if it's chain driven like alot of VAG v6's or has a Cambelt ?
    Also the last couple of days the engine has developed a loudish ticking , ideas ??

    Don't think any VAG V6 engines use a chain apart from the VW VR6
    They all have a chain that links the camshafts, but the timing belt is still a belt
