Question about Audi Cars & Trucks
There is no mention of the number of links but if the timing is right the colored links will be on the timing marks on the sprockets and the crankshaft
one mark will be at the 11 o'clock and the other will be at the 1 o'clock position with the crank sprocket at the 6 o'clock position
the book specifies that the crank sprocket is not keyed to the crank so you do the job at tdc of the piston
it is an interference fit engine so any crank movement or cam position adjustment has to be done with the cam shafts free of the followers or valve stems
a workshop manual will have photos and explicit directions to do the job correctly

I strongly recommend that you get a workshop manual and follow it closely as the fittment of the belt is not a straight forward job
Also it is an intereference engine which means that in the event of a belt breaking , valve damage is an almost certainty download kodi Kodi APK Download

Not sure if it is possible to have it run smoothly by being off a tooth.
The hash marks on the cam pulleys line up with the timing belt cover that goes over those pulleys. Should be two notches in the cover.
As for the lower marks...those aren't really visible till the lower aux. belt pulley is removed. Then you'll have a clear view of the line up marks. One on the inside and one on the outter area of the pulley itself.
When you put the t-belt on...it is a good idea to replace the tensioner as well.
Also when you have the new belt on...adjust the tensioner so that the handle looking thing is centered between the two notches that hold the tensioner in place to the block.
After putting all that together, its a good idea to rotate the timing belt two to four rotations till the marks all line up again. That will let you know if you are hitting the valves or not.

SOURCE: had a cambelt break on
Its because your pistons on 1&4 are up top that is why your bent valves got bent you are doing exactly the same thing so turn the crank back 15degrees position your cam and reset your crank,it seems to me you may be out of your depth lets hope not or it may be expensive

theres a reflash program that needs to be done on these cars, because of extended crank time and cam / crank syhcronizing out, start there,also i had one with same code and found that aftermarket cam sensors dont work, installed dealer part and had the updated reflashing done and solved the problem.
