Audi TT Quattro: How do I know when to replace my timing belt

This answer was rated:

How do I know when to replace my timing belt on my 2001 Audi TT? First time it was replaced was at 80,000 miles. Now has 153,000

Hello and welcome, Super mechanic here. Thank you for trusting us with your vehicle concerns, I will do my best to help you with your question.

Actually on the 1.8 dual overhead cam, turbo engine the timing belt is due at 105,000 miles. If it was done at 80,000, (73K ago) so it wouldn't be "due" for another 32,000 miles but it wouldn't hurt to do it a little sooner.

Thanks. I have a 1.8L, 2001 TT. What I hear you say is that since I replaced it at 80,000 and it should be able to go another 105,000, then I can wait until I have about 185,000 (probably a little less) miles to have it replaced again.... RIGHT?


 


Also, if the mechanic was to show me the timing belt, what are the indicators that it is worn and should be replaced earlier than the 185,000 miles?


 


Thanks,


Lauren


 

I don't know where you read that. What I said was, "so it wouldn't be "due" for another 32,000 miles but it wouldn't hurt to do it a little sooner.

Really should be done EVERY 105,000 miles.
