    Hi all, during my last service at an Audi garage i've been advised to change the cambelt & waterpump (+ another belt, which would that be?).
    they say there was a small oil leak near the belt and wanted to investigate, would any of you know what the cause could be? the car doesn't use oil so how real is the risk of the cambelt jumping ?

    also, i heard that i should replace the water pump with an better one, any recommendation? i saw this on ebay, is that any good? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110456729865&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    Do you know if Audi would agree to fit non oem parts ?
    Finally how much should the whole job be?

    thanks.:rock:
