    Not sure if mine was the stud you speak of, but one of the tensioner bolts snapped in half causing a failure on mine at 119k :( think it was the lower tensioner bolt of them all. They then had to re-tap the original hole and replaced the bolt with a rolls royce jet engine spec bolt lmao.. perhaps that fker wont break!!

    I've head of studs going on later models, you could just be the unlucky one and get a weak stud/bolt. If your doing a belt change then I normally replace the tensioner with stud/bolt and idler wheel (if fitted) and also water pump if driven off the cam belt.

    ive replaced the stud,but the stud has been torqed to spec,its been torqued 3 or 4 times(dont ask lol) changed waterpump after etc and stuf,will it be ok if its torqed each time,as far as im aware its when they get overtightened the problems arise.

    i think the stud should be ok,providing its torqued(which audi should/will do) personally i think they shear off and fail because they either get overtightened,or left too loose,more chance of overtightening....if its overtightened then the stud cant go in anyfurther into the engine block,it obvious then it starts pulling out of the block, then comes off/shears off.....what do you think il post a pick of the stud in a min.
