    hi all, i bought my 2001 audi a4 2.5tdi 180bhp 2 weeks ago with 75000miles on the clock.

    i'm going to do the timing belt myself as i've been reading there due at the 80k mark. (will be doing waterpump, idlers, aux belts - the lot with a full service)

    i've done a number of timing belts before but i've read they are quite tricky on these engines

    just spent the last few hours looking for a guide with pictures and have had no luck

    does anyone know any links for timing belt replacement for this engine with pictures?

    I Looked for ages and turned up nothing,in the end i took it to a fellow member on here who knows these engines inside out (adamss24) really nice bloke in north london, he changed all belts pullys hydraulic tensioner,watar pump and thermostat,5lof g12 antifreeze and timed the fuel pump with vag-com.all in £440. couldnt refuse this. I did watch him do it and can say its not for the faint hearted. good luck
