    Mark, if yours is a 2007 3 litre then for it to be a BBJ petrol which is mainly belt drive so is yours a diesel 3 litre? Quattro or manual?
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Yes, the BBJ, so yours is a diesel?

    Crasher so are they easier/cheaper to change on a diesel?

    Was referencing the fact that my 18yr old Petrol/LPG Jaguar's got chains/tensioners and, whilst not a doddle to change, cost less than half the price of a modern petrol Audi.

    Or just a juxtapose on Vorsprung durch Technik?

    The chains on the 2.7 and 3.0 V6 diesel are an awful job and the parts are stupid money and only available genuine. Some people take the gearbox out (the suggested Audi method), some people take the engine out.

    Yes I know the Ford engine built at Bridgend you refer to, a good unit initially let down by penny pinching accountants.

    Hi I have a 2006 3.2 A6 Avant (90k miles) and i think the Chain has gone. My wife started it up on Friday morning, and I could hear a loud rattling so she turned it off. I tried to restart but no luck and sounds pretty unhealthy.

    question is, if the chain has broken and the engine turned (RAC man came out and tried it too) what kind of cost am i looking at to repair at an independent? I am guessing it isnt going to be worth it? what i can see on the net is that it is an engine out job and seems like labour is going to make it not viable to fix? Has anyone actually had it fail and fixed it?

    thanks, Tom

    It is going to have bent valves so it will be easier engine out. No it will not be viable to repair (the parts are daft money, mostly genuine only) BUT as the car should be EU4 emissions, the value and desirability of a big petrol barge is going to appreciate, I think, quite significantly in the next year or two as the T zone **** hits the fans in various cities throughout the UK. Now is the time to be scouring the ads for broken petrol motors when they are worthless, fix them up and make a good profit in a year or so.

    I took a look at my block 93 values in VCDS and had a bit of a shock, as bank 2 intake is on the high side. Wondering now whether to attempt tensioner replacement or just move the car on. I had wanted to keep it a good number of years, but if it has a stretched chain and changing the tensioner will only delay the inevitable, then maybe I should try to dodge the bullet.

    I understand it could be the difference in the phase reading on each bank which indicates the amount of potential stretch in the chain, in my case 3 degrees between intake and exhaust on bank 2. Would be interesting to get a few comparisons from other forum readers with 3.2 FSI engines so we see what's normal.

    Car has 105k miles and a brief rattle on startup which soon clears.
