Nope, that's about right at an Audi dealership for parts and labor. Find an independent shop that specializes in European cars and talk with them - you'll probably be quoted more around $700-800 for the job, because they don't charge $100+ per hour like Audi does, and may allow you to supply the parts to them (check out and for timing belt kits - they're around $250 or so).

I want replacing timing belt

First, why do you want to replace? Normally this is recommended every 10 years or 80k miles (US). It's not really possible to look at a belt and determine if it's worn or not. The procedure requires removal of the front radiator and carrier (part the headlight attach to) as well as special tool to lock the cam wheels in place. It is not a process for the average mechanic because of the potential for engine damage if done incorrectly. Cost at most independent shops (not dealer) is between 800 and 1200 dollars. My 01 A8L has 55k miles, but it probably the original belt so I will have replaced soon. Good luck.

I am trying to figure out if the dealer's estimate to replace my timing belt is totally off the wall or not... they are taking my engine apart to replace a leaking gasket and told me that I should...

If they are in the engine anyway you should only have to pay for the belt and whatever time it takes to install it. Call around and compare quotes. I would sell a car that cost that much for a timing belt.

as the fuel pump is used by many other cars in the volkswagen stable,i would (ive checked)stick with Q7.just ask if the warranty on the replacement will be from the day you pick it up and not from your last cars delivery dealers are so nice ......(your paying top dollar,so they should be.)AUDI in latin means "listen"

Hi Looking to get the timing belt changed on my 2002 Passat GLX 4Motion. I have 145000 miles on the car. But after speaking with the mechanic its going to cost me over $1200. Not somthing I have available...

Jen... I have a 2002 Passat 2.8 V6 4Motion with 125,000 I just changed the Timming Belt, Water Pump, tensioners and thermostat. One dealer was charging me 1500 dollars and the other just 1000... I bought the parts myself thru and found a mechanic with experience, and he charged me 420 dolares. In total I paid something around 650 for the repair. In the end, my timming belt could last me more than 20 thousand miles more... but either way is a risk. If the belt brakes the repair will go for 4000 dollars to fix the engine. I'm in NE.

Rick, Unfortunately, you aren't alone. This is a fairly common problem on the Audi. Price of the panel replacement is in line. Just get a warranty on the panel, in case its a sending unit problem instead of the panel.
