One of the major maintenance items you want to consider on your Audi or VW is to change the accessory belt and tensioners around 100k miles.
The accessory belt is driven off the lower part of the engine and drives the alternator, power steering, air conditioning compressor and supercharger (if applicable).
Overtime the belt becomes worn in the grooves and can start to crack. Failure of the belt will result in a break down and the car will need to be towed.
If you are having your timing belt service done we do this service at no extra charge for labor as these parts need to be removed.
If you have a timing chain engine…consider doing this service at 100k miles.
