    Hi chaps,

    tried searching for the above but didnt see posts that gave a consistent reply. My water pump has gone and need to have it change (heating up to 120c in minutes of driving. Chap at an audi specialist says need to change bot belt and pump, that seems like standard practice. How much does it cost? the specialist quated £700.00, i though this seems a bit expensive? will check with audi on monday but though you guys could help in the mean while.

    Cheers.

    Think mine was £300 from Audi but don't go to them as they say they will fit the water pump with metal impeller and they put in the rubbish plastic one!!!!

    I was gonna say £200 sounds very cheap.... i've just done my own,,, got all my parts from GSF.... belt , pump and tensioner and ancillory belt came in at around £170 then factor in an oil change and some G12 coolant.... might aswell do those while the cars in the air you can quite easily go over £200 in parts to do the job properly..... my car had it's last belt done at 69000 miles by an independentt according to the service records and i can tell by looking at the parts i removed that they didn't change the waterpump or tensioner when they did it.... you need to factor these things in when getting a cheap quote..... that said though... £700 ouch i'll do it for ya at half that price... :)
