Spoken to my mechanic and he said the mileage is based on if you average 15k per year say. He said most timing belts don’t need replacing till at least 60k. All depends on the mileage. Mine is almost 5 years old but only has 33k on the clockI've got an A4 B9 1.4tfsi and on the myaudi app under service/additional work it lists camshaft drive toothed belt: renew every 140,000 miles
Cambridge Audi gave me a quote of £700 to change the cam belt for my A4 1.4 tfsi, i feel like it's a bit too much. has anybody done this recently?Had mine done a month ago, 5 years old on 34k. Local Indy done it, took it off and said it was fine. But for £321 better safe than sorry
Not in your area but Audi Sheffield has recently quoted £599, Audi Huddersfield £635. A local VAG specialist using dealer sourced parts £425 including updating the electronic service record to show the work has been done. The water pump doesn't need doing at the same time but would be about another £50 if you wanted it replacing too.Cambridge Audi gave me a quote of £700 to change the cam belt for my A4 1.4 tfsi, i feel like it's a bit too much. has anybody done this recently?
When I owned this car I had the timing belt changed by audi. They told me the same the water pump isn't changed as its in a different part of the engineI have an A4 Avant B9 1.4TFSI. I called three independents this morning about getting the timing belt and water pump replaced. One of them mentioned that for my variant of A4, the water pump is on the other side of the engine and is not normally replaced along with the timing belt. So far, most threads in this forum recommend getting both changed at the same time...What do others think about what this independent said?
Also, they said they typically use INA timing belt. Is this a good brand? or should I insist on Audi genuine parts?
Thanks for any advice..
