Timing Belt Time!

I am doing a timing belt for a friend on her '96 A6 and need to know a few things...

1) what brand belt is most recommended?

2) are there any DIY links or suggestions anyone could lend?

thanks in advance!

Hi

This is not so much a DIY but a good start at what you will need

Hi! Be aware that on V6 engines you need a special tool to adjust two heads to each other.

Mind torque specs

I told my mechanic I would probably change the timing belt myself: since he didn't discourage me, I'm assuming it's not too tricky; his only advice was to heed the proper torque specs. Good luck!

In case someone is looking for a complete timing belt guide including waterpump, thermostat and so on, check out this guide I made some while ago.
It covers the 2.6 and 2.8 engine. Good luck!
