Question about 1996 Audi A4
What timing belt kit to buy and where to buy it
It is fairly easy, you do need a special cam alignment too, it can be purchased online for $99. You also need a 2 jaw puller to remove the cam gears.
Care must be taken when servicing this engine as it is an interference engine and if the belt is installed wrong the valves will be bent.
