Default Timing Belt Replacement

Just a preview. Rest is coming when it's done.

Brings back memories...German engineering at its finest. How many miles did you get out of it?

100K. Belt was fine, two rollers noisy, water pump too but not leaking yet.

Nightmare of engineering is installing crankshaft blocking tool.

Not at this point. It would block access to the pump and thermostat. It comes on and of few times.

That strikes fear in me! As the owner of an A8, A6, and A4, I know I will have to take this task on sooner or later.

BTDT twice on my A8. The crank locking tool was pretty easy. IIRC, I remove the inner cv joint heat shield making access simple.

Holy crap!
Mishar, is this your spring cleaning project? I hope everything goes back where it came from. It looks like a pretty straight forward job though.

I have to check that before the write up. The easiest way I figured was to give a pair of gloves to my wife so she can wrench it trough the wheel well while I navigate the wrench.

I am thinking about special tool that would come instead of vibration damper and be bolted to one of treads on the block.

Actually it is. Sort of. I saw a few instructions and YouTube video that would mislead one for sure. But ELSA knows.
