Re: audi timing belt
It's a complicated job, and usually takes about 8 hours to do the full service if you're familiar with the car's mechanicals, you have a good array of tools (air tools help a lot), you're familiar with what you're doing, and with how to disassemble everything (including removing the front of the car - I'm not joking). There's more to the job than just the belt too - you need to replace the timing belt, timing tensioner, water pump, thermostat, serpentine belt, and serpentine tensioner. If your cam seals are leaking (which is also known to happen), you'd need those and plan for a couple more hours as well, due to the care that must be taken not to scratch or score the cam end caps.

Normally they fix these, during Timing belt Replacement. For an Audi A6 3.0, the replacement interval guide is every 80000miles or 8 years. Repair time, remove and install is 5hours. The cost of replacing a belt as part of a routine service could be as little as 5 to 10% of the repair cost following a belt failure. So if you decide to keep your car, keep in mind to spend at least $1000 for maintenance. Mine was a 2000 Audi A6 T2.7. With two, turbochargers under both sides of the engine. I sold it with 80000miles, without changing the belt. Hope this may help.
My sincere apologies for the delayed response. I am personally going back to answer - unanswered questions. I do not know if you still need this information, but I am going ahead and answering it anyway. You may want to Print the Diagrams for future use.

Audi revised the specified cam belt change interval from 120k to 80k, after a class action lawsuit was brought against them.
However, they have been known to break at around 65-70k. I always replace them earlier as a precaution..
