Question about Audi A6
Battery flat im trying to start but all i'm getting is the starter motor making a "clicking sound"?
The clicking noise is the starter selonoid because there is not enough power in battery, either fully charge the battery or get a jump start. if you have any other problems just let me know and i will try sort it for you. good luck

If you have a 2009 or 2010 Audi , there is a known fault in the J794 Infotainments control module , which effectivly doesn't shut down the MMI system and causes the battery to drain.
Audi is fully aware of this design/manufacture fault ( although they may not admit it)
i believe that the replacement unit is raelly eaxpensive so dont take no for an answer from audi on this!

There is an outstanding chance that the factory used a different method to set the timing during assembly and they can compensate for mis set gears and pulleys. When you had yours serviced it would be done differently and therefore not knowing the cam or crank was out of time with the marks would result in a mis-timing event.
Timing a cam and a crank by hand is not easy. What your mechanic experienced was unusual but not out of consideration.
Normally the cam is marked and the head is marked and you line up the marks before you take the belt off by turning the crank with a large socket wrench. THen you take the cam and the crank andd you lock them down with clamps and take the belt off. You then put the new belt on, take the clamps off and everything is fine. IF the belt was removed before the crank was set at TDC then the cam and the crank can be moved by hand but this is touchy. IF the cam and the crank are out of alignment from a gear perspective then you are really looking at a problem. The cam has to be timed so that the proper degree of rotation is being applied to get the lobes set to open the intake valve and the crank has to be set to ATDC. You can compensate on some of the older cars with ingnition timing but with the new electronic ones it is very hard to do.

The other bolt ( the top one ) is only accessable from the right front wheel well. I believe it is a 16mm. it is located in a small recess in the block that requires a flex joint with a socket, or if you dont have one a ring spanner. It is difficult to remove as the bolt is very long. This is not an easy job and the car needs to be in the service position,ie. the front bumper off and the carrier moved forward. the only way the starter can clear the frame for removal is by also removing the alternator.
