Re: Timing Belt Replacement
Usually you're looking at $900-1100 at a dealership for parts and labor. If you can take the car to an independent Euro shop, expect more like $700-850 for the same job. If you're in range of upstate NY, I can do it for you for about $650 p/l (I do it in my own garage - no overhead:) ).
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Line up the timing marks starting with the crankshaft pulley. Rotate the crankshaft clockwise until the marks line up. - See more at: http://www.happywrenching.com/a4/audi-a4-b5-28l-v6-timing-belt-replacement-removal-and-installation.html#sthash.FZPABPk1.dpuf
The idler pulley and the tensioner pulley are different. You will need special tools to do this job. I just completed doing the timing belt on my own 96 Audi A4 Quattro.Do you have a service manual for your car as this will help you alot. The tools you need are listed in the service manual with complete directions to complete the job. There are complete timing belt kits available that include the tools needed. The reason they recommend changing all the components is because it is often one of the components that fails that causes the timing belt to break.
Even your car Audi A4 1.9 TDI has got 55000 km and the timing belt replacement is due at 90000 km, the car was made in 2003. I strongly recommend you to change now the timing belt in order to prevent any risk!
Belt tensioner puley.Sience you said timing belt was done , that means water pump was replaced too.
Just had same thing in the shop , weard noise hard to tell were from , happened to be a serpentine belt tensioner puley.Can't replace puley only , it comes as assembly.
It is behind the timing belt area on the right front corner of the motor..You will need to remove the timing belt to get it out (well sometimes you can flex it enough to get the t-stat out) and so you may as well replace the belt while you are in there..
The timing belt interval used to be 120k, but after numerous timing belt breaks and a class action lawsuit against VAG, Adui has changed the interval to 80k..However, i have seen them break even at 70k miles. Unless you see paperwork that it has been done, just plan on replacement before 70k. Better safe than sorry, if it breaks it costs thousands!
Audi 4 cylinder engines must have timing belt replaced as soon as 75,00 miles but no later than 105,000 miles. When doing job properly the mechanics should be replacing belt, tensioners, rollers, waterpump, thermostat and gasket. Average price would be around $900-$1200 US dollars.
