hello my buddy is replacing his timing belt on a 2001.5 audi a4 1.8t quattro and has the entire front end of the car including the old timing belt, but he cant figure out how to get the new timing belt back on. we think it has to do with the tentioner but its different than older b5 audis. wondering if we could get some help with this project. step by step would be great!!!

Make sure you have the right parts. Theres a couple differnt tensioner/belt combinations. The belt is also a tight fit, even with the tensioner fully tensioned. Put the belt on everything but the cam gear. Then put the belt entirely on the cam gear as much as you can on the left side. It should be just to short to fit on the right side of the gear. Then uses the special tool to turn the cam gear. It will bring the side you have on around the cam gear and put the belt the rest of the way on.

Default RE: 2001 audi a4 timing belt replacement q's!!!

Hey I'm new here so I don't know if I'm asking my question at the right place. I've got some concerns about an a4 I just got. It's a 1997 2.8 with 25,000 miles.It's been running great but two things happenedrecently. 1 I've been toldI need to replace the front axles soon.[:'(] And the other day I hit a shallow spot off a shoulder, heard a noise I didn't like and now I feel a bump over in the front passenger side. Could it be related to the axle i needto replace or maybe a suspensiong problem? I don't think I dented the wheel b/c it was in the grass where thewhole was and it wasn't to abrupt. 2 I feel as though my accelleration anddeaccelleration is notnearas smooth as it was.She seemsjerky picking up speed and whenI down-shift. I don't know if this could be something serious. I don'tknow anything about working on this care so I'm a bit nervous. Any Advice?
