Go to www.audidiy.com or www.audiworld.com (look in their Tech area), and there are full procedures on how to do it (it's the timing belt service). It's not a difficult job really, but you may need to get some specialty tools such as Torx bits to do the job.
Make sure that you get G12 coolant from VW/Audi (the pink kind) and if you have some other color in there now, flush it fully before adding the G12. You can order everything you need, including coolant, from www.ecstuning.com (I've used them many times with full satisfaction). Don't waste your money on the advertised cam locking tool - it's very expensive and wholly unnecessary. Its intent is to keep the cams from spinning, but if you position the #3 cylinder (rear passenger side) to top-dead-center on its compression stroke, the cams would have to be hit with a hammer to turn them.
The job is not difficult really. I've done many timing belts on many cars before, so I know what I'm doing overall, but the first time I did an Audi 2.8L V6, it took me a total of 5.5 hours start to finish. Many other cars (like my 300ZX) take that long just to reach the timing belt. As for how these kinds of jobs go, this is a very easy one.
Buzz me back on here or in email at email@example.com if you have any questions you'd like answered related to this or the rest of your car and I'll do what I can to help you out.

do you mean how... or where is it located.... look under the hood for the fuse panel located there. basically you find the correct relay ... pull it out and replace it. there are more relays under the dash and i've heard the audi's also have them in the trunk.
