    Need to get the timing belt, tensioner and water pump changed on my 2.0L TDI. I have been told it needs doing as the car is 5 years old.

    I got a quote from Audi for £555.00 is this about right?

    Does the Audi garage offer fixed price servicing?

    Local indy here charged £390 all in last year.

    £550 all in is the price I was quoted by my local Audi dealer.

    Is that price for parts only, or includes labour?

    That's a set price for the work. I do get a free MOT with that.

    My local stealer quotes £440 for just the Cambelt kit on my 2.0T, I haven't been quoted yet on the water pump, but will call them this week and compare with a few Indy prices before making the final decision. It seems it'll be in the region of your quote though.

    Get a quote from an independent and then take it to the dealership: there's a chance they'll match it.

    Working nights Monday so can ring around and get quotes. Would you still ask for genuine parts?

    A quality independent would use OEM parts anyway: even if they source them from TPS!

    Thanks guys. I will ring around tomorrow. Whilst it's in bits, should I get anything else looked at or changed?

    Okay I've just had a talk with the local dealer & the nice lady quoted me £628 for Belt kit & Water pump! then she took my Reg number to double check & said my car doesn't have a belt, apparently it's chain driven! Win!!! ...I thought. Now I'd previously called Russell Automotive and they've quoted me £490 for belt kit (including tensioner) and water pump, which seems ...exploitative, considering I didn't know it was chain driven at the time.

    I asked Audi service how much for just the Water Pump change & she quoted me £628 ...:wtf: ...she said it's because there was a special offer on for the Belt kit, but the Water pump alone didn't qualify for the discount! I told her I'd call back & hung up in shock.

    I've yet to call Russells back for a new quote as it's all still sinking in.

    Moral: book a belt change ...even if you don't have one. :uhm:

    Just booked mine in for the belt/chain kit, water pump and Aux belt. All genuine Audi parts for £410 inc VAT. I don't think that's a bad price.

    Make sure you get the tensioner changed - this is more important than the actual belt IMO.

    I just had water pump and belt changed on my audi, got original parts from TPS in hayes for £108 (the water pump was exchange). This was much cheaper than even Eurocarparts and the main dealer and parts were genuine.

    I just replaced my timing belt and water pump.
    I bought the OE kit and a Hepu water pump with ~260 GBP
    This is the kit I bought. The parts in the pictures are the old ones.

    Just had mine done today. Timing belt kit, water pump, Aux belt, oil and filter, all genuine Audi parts for £420. I don't think that's bad.
