2002 Audi A4 - replace cambelt

I just took my car into the garage to get the cambelt, tensioner and water pump replaced (it has now done 75,000 miles).

I ended up having to pay for a new ' Vibration dampener kit' apparently because the bolts had siezed on through normal wear and tear and were sheared off. Is this a common problem? I just got a feeling that I was being ripped off.

Got audi a4 1996 diesel need to change cambelt but


A diesel uses a different procedure. You'll need a tool to hold the camshaft pulley parallel to the top of the cylinder head. The timing mark to set TDC for piston #1 is located on top of bell housing. The pointer must be aligned on the diamond cut on the flywheel. A VW/Audi setting bar tool #2065A is needed to lock the camshaft in position. Lock the injection pumpin position using the special lock pin (VW/Audi special tool no. 2064). Caution: If the drive belt is broken or has jumped time, do not attempt to lock the sprocket at this time!!! You will also need VW/Audi special tool no. VW210 to measure belt tension between camshaft sproket and injection pump sprocket. So good luck.

What should i expect to pay to have my timing belt replaced?


Hi
Including the new tensioners £250 I had mine done about 6 weeks ago but I also got a water pump at the same time. If you are doing it anyhow then do get new tensioners and replace the water pump they commonly fail on the 20v engine and most times thats the engine finished.

Hope this helps. Also I did not use my local audi garage as they wanted £350 and everytime it go's to audi it develops new problems when I get it back somehow my bill at audi is always over £500.

Hope this helps
Regards
Dan

Audi A4 2006 2.0 Turbo Quattro, with 13000 miles. Problem: When warmed up, check engine light comes on and a loud squeal is heard. Tapers off when gas is pressed. Power remains OK. Air control system...


Hi,
the squeal is caused by a belt,not tensioned correctly ,I would check the cambelt tension first and then the serpentine belt,if not obvious you need to take to a Audi trained garage.If you plug in a code reader it will help point you in the right direction by the fault code.

Waterpump failure. Rattling and water leaking. Do I just replace waterpump, or do I go all out and replace cambelt and tensioners, timers, seals etc


I'm not sure about Audi 80's, but on A4's you have to pull the whole front of the car off (bumper, headlights, radiators, radiator support panel - the a/c radiator just moves out of the way thanks to long rubber hoses, so not discharge/recharge necessary), but then you get fantastic access and it's really not that hard a job (an hour give or take).
If you are going this far, do the timing belt, thermostat and accessary belts. For an extra $100 in parts, you only pay about another 30 mins labour. And if you're doing it yourself - well, you're there anyway!
If getting done professionally, go to a VW/Audi specialist as they will have the specialist tools necessary for the job - a regular garage WILL NOT!!

2002 Audi A4 Esp Light comes on, car turns off when I have to sto


I had the same issue with my '05 A4 1.8T.  Turns out it was the RPM sensor.  Audi tried to tell me it was teh fuel pump and the cam-shaft positioning sensor.  Paid for teh fuel pump replacement and it died 6 blocks from the dealership.  Then they replaced the RPM snesor, works great now... Except it's still an Audi.

Heater does not produce hot air even on high only warm air


My 2002 Audi A4 doesn't produce the hot air, It's an Auto computer control temperature system. I took my car to the local mechanic (gas station), he said that the water pump and the timing belt need to be replaced.

The heating system normally produces by the engine, then normally the "thermostat' is causing the issue, but the temperature gauge doesn't indicate the overheat.

Any idea what's cause this problem?
