    I have the same CCZA engine & it'd be nice to know for definite. Are you certain, as I read elsewhere that some engines have both Chain & Belt?

    Edit: it seems you're correct - just checked on another forum. :)

    Pretty sure there's the Cambelt that you replace and is connected to the crankshaft, then there's a camchain which connects the two cams together.

    As above, your 2004 A3 2.0 FSi non turbo has both a timing belt and a timing chain.

    Belt from Crankshaft - waterpump - camshaft

    and

    Chain from exhaust cam to inlet cam.

    Only the belt is a service item that should be changed at a set interval (60-75,000miles (depends on who you ask) or 5 years). The chain only needs changing if you are experiencing problems with it.
