    Hi all,

    I'm about to have the cambelt replaced, does anyone have a full list of which parts I need?

    Things I read so far;

    Cambelt
    Tensioner
    Waterpump
    Tensioner Roller
    V Belt

    Cheers

    Instead of buying all the parts seperately you should be able to buy the cambelt, tensioner and idler pulley in a kit, which works out cheaper. Gates have recently started doing timing belt kits with waterpumps. A decent motor factor should be able to supply you with this.

    Russ,
    Here's a web page that should help, if you're after the Audi part numbers:

    w w w.amp82.co.uk/tt/timingbelt/

    I found it via this useful site

    w w w.wak-tt.com/

    Watch out about the roller though, I think some different engine variants (eg AMK, BAM) have different part numbers.

    Try GSF, I got my cambelt kit for about 75 quid. Waterpump was 25 quid.

    For the sake of a few quid, I would recommend you change the auxilary belt aswell, since you have to take it off to access the cambelt.

    Hello Guys
    Well the worst thing happened the other day, my water pump siezed/colapsed and took with it the timing belt!

    In the shop at present getting re-built!

    Questions are these:
    1. Been told the cost will be around £1800 worst case, does this sound about right?
    2. New valves, belt, tensioners, pump the usual! Whats the chances of the pistons, cam shaft, crank shaft, turbo being damaged?
    3. Is there a chance that this repair will not be perminant and i can expect lots of problems now, the car was great until this 2001 W reg 52K miles. Should I get the work done and then sell the car?
    4. Will there be a running in period once the work is done?

    Mechanic (Audi specialist) telling me that no damage to the above items occur in his experience, although slight marking to pistons sometimes but nothing to worry about...

    As always your help and advise is always appreicated.

    Kindest Regards
    Geoff W
