Thanks. This is pretty much the information/advice I was looking for. Must be all labor.
If it is just removal and replacement without any adjustments, I should be able to tackle it. I’ll see if YouTube has some videos on it.
Thanks. You always have valuable information/advice.
Resurrecting this....So I haven't done anything yet. But I would like to verify that in fact this thing is leaking. What is the best way to degrease/clean (products?) around the area to see if it actually is? I know the connector from the PCV to the rear intake tube is a little broken and it is really messy around there. I'll take some pictures.
That $1750 is just for that work, to replace the seals at the timeing chain cover and the cam girdle from Audi. VW told me $1450, but they need the car to make sure that's what it is. I know there is some labor involved, moving coolant reservoir out of the way, oil dipstick, coilpacks, PCV, HPFP and others. I've watched the YouTube hack videos on this and also have the official Audi workshop manual, thanks to a forum member. Not out of my league, but pushing the limits of what I want to do.
What's involved in a timing chain job anyway? I thought chains did not need to be replaced typically.
