A Little Extra Work!

The Audi A6 2.7T engine involves a little more labor (vs 2.8L) due to the disassembly and assembly of the upper intercooler Y-pipes and lower drivers side intercooler to turbo pipe. The Y-pipes are located in front of the timing belt covers. The lower intercooler to turbo pipe is located on the drivers side of the engine block just bellow the motor mount engine bracket. This hose needs to be removed to get to the crankshaft lock pin access hole for tool 3242.

TECH TIP: When performing timing belt service for the first time, many Audi A6 2.7T owners skip a key step to try and save time. Some choose not to install crank lock pin 3242. This tool helps to achieve 100% proper engine timing. The installation area for the crank lock pin on the 2.7T is hidden and hard to reach. It's located on the driver side of the engine block behind the lower intercooler pipe. When skipping this important step many later realize that their engine timing is not as accurate as factory specified. They then have to frustratingly go back to earlier steps in order to achieve proper timing. We highly recommend taking the extra 15-20 minutes needed to remove the lower intercooler pipe, thus allowing for easier access to the crank lock pin location. Not cutting corners, will allow for a problem free Audi Allroad timing belt service and saves time and frustration because of not having to repeat multiple sequences.

Looking to Buy A Used Audi Allroad? Wondering About Timing Belt Replacement?

Many people who are looking to buy a used Audi Allroad 2.7T 30 valve start researching the cost of replacing the timing belt. It's best to purchase a car that comes with service history records from the previous owner. Owners who value their car and took care of it will have a record of all service history, an indication of the vehicle's overall shape and reliability. The importance of service records is indisputable. A seller without any service records, is looking to take advantage of the "inexperienced" buyer, making more money at their expense.

Inspecting a timing belt that "seems fine" isn't enough. You'll also want to confirm when the last timing belt service was performed with the appropriate documentation. Don't just take the word of a seller saying "Oh, I think I changed it around 30,000 miles ago." Assumptions and no documents means RISK. Calculate the cost of timing belt replacement into your purchase price if they don't have the records.Audi Allroad Timing Belt Replacement Service Records

Buyer: "Do you have the paperwork?"
Seller: "No, I don't."
Buyer: "Well with no documentation, I'll have to get it replaced to establish a guarantee baseline. That will cost me around $800-$1,500. Are you willing to take $800 to $1,500 off the purchase price?"
