    In a word.... yes!

    These don't get changed (typically) as part of a dealer belt change and I have seen them fail... the damper can leak and I have seen the damper sink into the alloy carrier (there will be a gap between the damper seal and the circlip) both of which lessens the travel and allows the belt to slip...

    I have seen a friends car trash a head due to this...

    These should be changed as part of a cam belt service IMO...

    they make OEM stuff for VAG so I would think so yeah... prob find when it arrives its got 2 machining marks on it where the VAG part number and Audi rings have been machined off
