    Guys.

    Getting ready to do this on my 1.8TAEB A6 in the next few weeks. Has anyone done this?
    If so did you move the lock carrier into the service position and did you have the special Audi bolts No.3369 or did you make up yor own and if so have you any dimensions.
    Or did you take the whole lock carrier off the car.

    Did the timing belt, tensioner pulleys, water pump and auxillary belts over the weekend (€270 in parts). Took the whole lock carrier off as much as i could but the autobox cooling lines prevented me from removing it completely.
    Apart from the whole hassle of getting to the timing belt the job itself was quite straight forward. One less job i'll have to pay a garage for in future.
