    I work in the parts trade and I am in the process getting the parts together for a cambelt change on my S3 AMK..

    Heres the list

    Cambelt and Alt Belt
    Damper
    Tensioner (Cambelt)
    Waterpump

    By the looks of things there is a tensioner for the alternator.. Do I need this.. Is there anything else I`m missing

    If you get a Cambelt kit, it will come with the belt and a new hydraulic damper/tensioner with seperate pulley. Alternator belt is optional, I would change it as it's coming off anyway. I recommend you get the waterpump from GSF and specifically ask for the metal impellor one, as in ask to see it before you pay for it, as they stock both! And since the waterpump is coming off, you might aswell change the coolant for some fresh stuff, so price in a couple of bottles of G12 coolant.
    I see no need to change the AUX belt tensioner unless there is signs if wear like play or seizing.

    Before i got the S3 I had a TT and got all the bits via GSF at trade.. Now Sachs are doing these parts I can get them alot cheaper (Cut the middle man) and being Sachs less you know its good stuff.. I`d be interested in knowing what people are paying for these parts and i will see if i can beat them..
