How To Step 1

With bumper cover removed, proceed to remove all decorative engine covers.

How To Step 2

PLEASE READ IMPORTANT SERVICE BULLETIN (click here) before draining the coolant system.

Please Note: Some choose to just remove the thermostat and water pump and not completely drain the engine block 100%. Pulling out the water pump and thermostat to drain the coolant isn't enough. It's important to completely drain the block by paying close attention to this step.

Drain the remaining coolant from the engine block by removing the drain plug. On a 2.8L Audi A4 engine, the drain plug is located in the bottom of the block, just behind the driver side of the sub-frame. The 6mm Allen head fastener will be in a machined recessed area on the engine side of the bell housing. Reinstall this fastener when the cooling system has been thoroughly drained.

How To Step 7

Remove the viscous fan assembly by using special tools 3312 and 3212.

Contrary to the typical lefty-loosy theory, this is a reverse thread since the engine spins in a clockwise position. The unit has a left-hand thread, so you must remove it by turning the fastener in a clockwise direction. These may be very tight and require some patience.

Please Note: When using tool 3212, spread the arms of the tool apart as far as possible, so as not to bend or break tool.

How to replace Audi A4 timing belt - step 7

How To Step 8

Remove all 3 timing belt covers. Audi A4 timing belt covers are held in place by several clips on the top and bottom of each cover.

How to replace Audi A4 timing belt - step 8

How To Step 9

Remove the viscous fan pulley bracket. To remove the fan pulley bracket locate two 6mm Allen head fasteners hidden on the lowest portion of the fan pulley bracket. There will be two additional fasteners that are located and accessed through the pulley. One is a 5mm Allen head fastener located at about 11 o'clock through one of the small holes. The other is a 6mm Allen head fastener located at about 6 o'clock through one of the oval shaped holes.

Please Note: These fasteners are hard to find and difficult to see and may sometimes seem lost. The viscous span pulley bracket has 2 hidden Allen head fasteners within the pulley. The 5 mm fastener is located at approximately 11 o'clock and the 6mm fastener is located at approximately 6 o'clock.

How to replace Audi A4 timing belt - step 9

How To Step 10

Rotate the engine by the crankshaft with a 12 point 24mm socket wrench in a clockwise direction to align all timing marks.

To accomplish this you will be lining up two engine timing marks. One will be your crankshaft timing mark and the other will be the camshaft timing mark. To align the crankshaft timing mark there will be a machined line in the crankshaft vibration damper that will coincide with an arrow mark on the lower most timing belt cover. Simultaneously, the two largest holes on each diamond shaped camshaft washer should be pointed directly inward.

Please Note: Be sure to take your time. Make sure to properly align the timing marks and insert the pin (see next step) before you take anything else apart. You do not want the crankshaft to move.

How to replace Audi A4 timing belt - step 10a
How to replace Audi A4 timing belt - step 10b

How To Step 11

The crankshaft locking plug can be a plastic cap or a metal threaded Allen plug. Using a 10mm wrench or 6mm Allen wrench, remove the crankshaft locking plug cap. This plug is located under the driver side engine motor mount bracket. To access this plug, you will need to bend the motor mount harness bracket off to the side.

When you remove the plug, be careful to not lose it's companion o-ring seal. If you are assured that the engine timing marks are aligned, thread crankshaft locking pin tool 3242 in place and lightly tighten with a 10mm wrench. With a 12 point 24mm socket wrench, double check that the crankshaft will not move by lightly trying to turn the crankshaft.

Please Note: Be sure to complete this step and install crankshaft locking pin tool 3242 before you take anything more apart. This tool helps to achieve 100% proper engine timing. You do not want the crankshaft to move. Although inserting this tool at this point may seem like more work, it's really less work in the long run.

How To Step 12

Use a 6mm Allen wrench to remove the vibration damper/serpentine belt pulley from the end of the crankshaft.

Please Note: Take your time. You can easily strip or round out the pulley Allen fasteners, making it difficult to get off. Before vibration damper removal, clean out the 6mm Allen heads with a pick. Lightly tapping in the 6mm Allen bit may also be helpful.

How to replace Audi A4 timing belt - step 12

How To Step 13

Use a 10mm socket wrench to remove bolts holding the pulley cover into place.

How to replace Audi A4 timing belt - step 13

How To Step 14

Tool 3391 can be a single or three piece tool. Use cam lock bar tool 3391 to loosen the tapered camshaft pulleys from each camshaft. Loosen camshaft fasteners until they can be hand loosened. The tapered camshaft pulleys must be loosened to properly set the engine timing during reassembly.

How to replace Audi A4 timing belt tool 3391 - step 14

IMPORTANT STEP

The camshafts do not have key ways. They are tapered camshafts and are held in place by the conical shape of the camshaft and pulley being tightly pressed together when tightened.

For camshaft timing reference, the two largest holes on each diamond shaped camshaft washer should be pointed directly inward. When the diamond shaped washers are removed there will be a large flat spot on the cone of the camshafts. This is also a timing reference. These flat spots always point inward.

Always make sure the diamond-shaped washers mate properly to the camshaft when being installed! If by chance the camshafts move manually turn them back into place.

During reassembly the tapered camshaft pulleys must be loosened to properly set engine timing and timing belt tension. If the timing belt tension is set without the tapered camshaft pulleys being loosened and reset, proper engine timing and timing belt tension will not be attained. Again, if the camshaft sprockets are not loosened and reset, this can cause belt misalignment, as well as, binding of the timing belt causing premature timing belt and related timing belt component wear.

How to replace Audi A4 timing belt tapered camshaft pulleys

How To Step 15

By hand loosen the cam pulley bolts about 3-4 full turns. This will allow an air gap between the fastener washer and the diamond shaped washer.
