To prevent catastrophic engine damage, it is recommended that you replace this part when installing a timing belt kit on vehicles with higher mileage.
A hydraulic Audi timing belt damper for early 1998 V6 30 valve engines is used to apply the proper amount of tension to the tensioner lever, which then applies tension to the timing belt. Though this part is durable, it can fail. If the belt looses tension, the timing belt can slip a tooth or two and cause engine damage.
