I know several of you guys are VAG specialists so...
We have the above vehicle booked in next week for a timing belt replacement (the first of these engines we have seen for a belt). Autodata says you must use a digital torque wrench (part no VAS 6583) to tighten the tensioner bolt which we do not currently have and is very expensive. My question is: is there anything special about this tool or will a conventional digital torque wrench suffice (which we do have)? Also there is no specific guideline on the water pump belt replacement interval - is it normal procedure to change this at the same time (Autodata just says check at 140K - the vehicle has done just 40K). Thank you in anticipation.


James.

Post the VIN.

Vile Invention

Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

I will try and do this at work tomorrow, it seems to be impossible to fix my account so that I can access it on anything but an iOS machine but I will try.

I fix peoples cars and help people fix their own or other cars but it seems no one can fix my screwed up BBA account so that I can view it on a PC, at least a year of asking for help gets no response.

Thank you for those very comprehensive instructions dave_1 which rather confirm what Autodata is saying. It does seem as though VAS6583 is pretty essential and in view of the price, unless you are doing a lot of these, it is not really cost effective so we are going to pass it on to one of our local VAG specialists (the cost of all the special tools alone would have been more than we would have charged for the whole job!). If this is the way things are going it's going to be an uphill battle for small independent businesses wanting to do things properly...
