Hello

Im from the UkMkiv side but my boss has a 04 1.8T A4 going in for a cambelt change and i was wondering if the Audis have the same issue as the Golf with the waterpump being behind the belt so as hes getting the belt changed should he get the pump changed as well or anything similar?

Thanks

Yep the exact same, water pump has to come out and changed with one that preferably has a metal impeller.

The metal impeller isnt the main problem to be honest its the fitting that holds the impeller to the spline that normally comes loose and because the plastic then breaks up people think they are not as good but i have changed many metal ones aswell with the same issue

It's a good preventitive measure, it all has to come off if it goes!
