  • Timing belt change

    I've had my 93 ABY Avant for over 3 years now. I had been told the belt and pump had been changed when i bought the car but after checking i could not find proof of it being done in the documents. As peace of mind i want to change the belt, water pump and tensioner. Am i best sticking with Genuine Audi parts and if so where is the best place to get them?

    I would recommend parts from INA, SKF and Contitech. The same products as Audi sells but for half the price.
    I also would change the toothed belt pulley on the crankshaft, they break very often!

    Be aware that you need a special tool (VAG 2084) to get the big screw in the crankshaft opened.

      2084 doesn't work on the ABY. I fitted a Gates belt and Valeo water pump to mine

        Thanks guys! I was planning on making a locking tool up if I can't find one. I was reading that the bottom pulleys sometimes fracture. I think I will get that changed while I'm doing this. Bloody alternator gave up the ghost heading home from work today so will be another job to Do!
        Will I need a new crank bolt or can I reuse the one I Have?

          You can reuse the old bolt. Where are you based - I may be able to lend you the locking tool

              That would be handy. I'm in Dumfries SW Scotland. I would be happy to come a run on my bike and collect it.

                Get a CrMo sprocket off Terrybullwon on here.

                Gates cambelt (they are the OEM) - Gates p/n - 5269XS
                INA idler bearing/pulley (they are the OEM) - INA p/n - 531 0731 10
                SKF water pump - p/n VKPC 81612

                Potentially worth changing the hall sensor while you're in there, depending on its age etc - Bosch 0 232 101 020

                  Just borrowed a tool made for AAN and found out it wont fit for V-belt damper, botched together a new one. Inner diameter of the damper is ~67mm.

                          Yes you are right! The pipe is too short for ABY engines, i forgot this.
                          I had to modify my 2084.

                            Got my pulley today. Looks like a good bit of kit. I went with a Gates belt and an SKF water pump.
