Taking to the Dealership is Better and they can print the List for you there. But, If it runs and drives fine now, DO NOT let them try and stick you with Unnecessary Repairs.

I am sorry as this model is not in our country, our safety standards are a physical test and inspection in a test center. Vehicles with a computer code should be taken to a dealer for a down load and a estimate or quote given, then it is up to you where you get this work carried out. Be careful some times the dealer can repair better than some independent shops, get 2 or 3 estimates first. P

On the 2004 Element. Do you have to change the timing belt at a particular time ; or does it have a Chain?


Honda element has a Timing Chain, and Honda doesn't even recommending looking at it till something like 110,000 or 120,000 miles.
However, it is this an "interference" engine, meaning that if the chain or belt fails it could destroy the valve train and even the pistons.
Because it is an interference engine. I plan to change my chain at 100K, since I expect the car to go at least 200K but don't expect the chain to last that long.
Normally cars has Tune ups scheduled at 30K, 60, and 90K. As the rule of the thumb at 90K Tune up mechanic shops recommend timing Belt or Chain to be replaced. We can go for longer taking the risk.

Not sure if i should wait until 100k miles to get a tune up or do it now at 90k before taking a 1500 mile road trip??


If you perform this service now, you will feel better that during this long trip, nothing will go wrong, however unless there is a current driveability issue, it does not HAVE to be done.

How do I remove the alternator on an Audi A6?


I'm going to assume you have the 30v V6 as that was the most common engine for your car. Alternator replacement involves the removal of the headlights and bumper, draining coolant, and opening the front of the car (it's designed to allow this - google "audi service position" to see how it's done). Once the car is opened up the alternator can be replaced, but even then it's not an easy job as the bolts are difficult to reach and it's a really tight fit. It can be done but set aside a full day if you're not mechanically familiar with Audis. At a shop I'd expect 5-6 hours labor plus the cost of the part. Do it yourself or find a shop that is known for working on European cars, but don't go to a dealer. You'll pay $500-750 at an independent shop, but I'd bet on $1500+ at a dealer.

That's quite a bit to fix up but the best place for you to check how much you should expect to pay in the area of the country that you live is www.repairpal.com. This is a website that takes the most common repairs and gives you a range of how much you should expect to pay. The range is for mom and pop shops up to getting work done at the dealer.

Tie rod repair estimate


You didn't say if you were looking for inner/outer or for one side or both so I'm going to give you inner and outer for both sides, because you should get them both done if you have one done. For the inner tie rod you should look to pay $200-350 and for the outer tie rods you should look to pay $175-275. Check out this website http://repairpal.com/. It is a great place to find out how much you should expect to pay for many common repairs. You will see a range and that is because it takes into account the small shops and the dealers. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

When is a good time to replace the timing belt/chain on I35


I35's do not have timing belts. They have timing chains and do not need to be replaced. The only Infiniti vehicles with timing belts are the J30 and the QX4. So whoever told you that you had a belt doesn't know what they are talking about.

When should the timing belt be changed on my 2006 TDI?  The service manual says 144K.  I have 158K with an extended warranty to 160K.  Should I be getting ready to have the timing belt changed?


Yes...I'm surprised that they let it go that long...Most failures I've seen are around 80-90K!!! I wouldn't worry about it a lot, but get it changed soon!!

Repair or item list for 50k mile service for my 06 530i


Probably the pollen filters as well, brake fluid and anti freeze. If this is your last free service with the dealer it pays to ask them if you can check the service schedule list for your car.
