Continuing on from teh timing belt thread, I was at my local Audi dealer and
asked what was the timing belt replacement schedule for the S6 (C4 chassis).
He replied 130000 kms. My car is a 1996 with less than 78000kms (49000
miles), so I asked if there is a time period, of say a number of years, that
should be considered instead. He replied 5-6.
So I know I'm due a replacement but just wondering what you all thought.
Sadly, I must agree. My 1997 A4 had 53,000 miles on it when I changed
the timing belt. After this many years, it becomes a time issue.
While I haven't read here that a timing belt has broken before 60,000
miles, I didn't want to be the first.
I'd say "YES".
Also have the serpentine belt, water pump, tensioner and one more item that
doesn't come to mind. My local aftermarket Audi specialist charged me
CDN$711 for the lot (about US$522).
The mechanic showed me the parts afterward. The T-belt looked OK. The
serpentine belt looked like crap.
