Question about 1995 Audi A6

1 Answer

I want to install a new fanbelt on a 1995 A6 2.6 Saloon

The old belt snapped and I have removed the covers. I don't understand how the belt is tensioned and how to release what look like a tension wheel to install the new belt.

Hi Stephen

At the top right is the tension-er, which is spring loaded.

Click on the link below and there is some good pics, and the info there that you need.

Might be a good idea to renew your water pump too, while you have it all apart, as the new belt will put more tension on it, and it might fail.
Also make sure the Jockey pulley and tension-er bearings are OK.

Make sure the valve timing is spot on too !

Good Luck !

Don´t forget to give me a rating please !

John.

Water leak at the timing belt cover


Inside the timing belt cover the pulley that the timing belt goes areound other than the crank and the cam is the water pump. You describe the water pump as failed. Remove the belt with the timing belt marks lined up and replce the pump and install a new belt as you reassamble the car and your good to go another 80 thousand miles. Replace the regular belts too and you'll have this area of service qwork all covered and replace the antifreeze mixture while your doing it as pumps don't normally fail until the antifreze is drity and old.

Timing marks for 3.4 v6 1995 olds cutlass supreme


It doesn't have any marks. Make your own before you remove the belt. If the belt was broke or you already removed the belt then you will have to remove the valve covers and install specialty tools into the ends of the camshafts to line everything up correctly.

1995 toyota camry leaking oil from behind the timing belt cover. Isn't this a major repair? Is the leak more than likely a camshaft seal?


If you haven't had the timing belt replace (60,000 miles is the suggested service intervale) this is an overlap of having the timing belt replaced.
If the timing belt is not due for replacement and its the cam shaft seal that is leaking. Its a pretty easy fix. Remove the top timing belt cover , and the crankshaft sensor wiring you may have to remove the front engine mount . Set #1 piston at TDC, Loosen tensioner w/ spring slip off belt. **Remove sprocket pull out old seal with a sharp pick. Greese and install new seal make sure its flush with its bore . Reistall sprocket. Slide belt over Cam sprocket tighten tensioner. Install cover and mount (if applicable) Check timing marks by turning crank two revolutions.
** If CamSprocket Bolt is difficult to remove then remove valve cover and use a 21mm wrench to hold the Camshaft while you crack off Cam Sprocket Bolt.
You will see the groves on the Camshaft where you can place a wrench to hold the shaft.
After you replaced the seal replace the valve cover gasket ONLY IF YOU HAD TO REMOVE THE COVER TO HOLD THE CAM WHILE REMOVING ITS BOLT.

This is about as major as it gets.

How do you remove and install a water pump on a 1995 Nissan pathfinder?


big job you will have to remove the timing belt to do it so you might as well change it since you will have it off,but i don' t recommend just any body do it as you will need metric bolt puller set to remove the crank pulley,but mostly you remove the radiator shroud and everything in the way of the plastic belt covers as they have to come off to access belt and water pump.its about four hour job with professional tools.
