    It's a tiny bit more "scientific" than that Watty - on the front of the belt look for any signs of wear, contamination or damage on the toothed side look for cracks between the teeth, damage to the teeth or anything missing. If in any doubt, change it - it's the only way to be sure...

    I have a timing belt book somewhere that I am pretty sure covers this car, if you want to know how to do it, or even what is needed/how long it takes to do it drop me a line and I will see what information I have on it....

    Thanks Mr C


    Yeah for 200 im not complaining. Will shine up really well and the only bit of rust i can find is a bit starting about half the size of a 5p next to the filler cap


    Yes it a 5 cylinder turbo mate. Had a 5 cylinder Audi many moons ago and at first i thought it would sound like that but still sounds decent and with only having 180hp theres next to no torque steer

    Thanks Simon


    Yeah im well pleased with it for the money. It served its purpose for my mate and he just wanted rid quick n easy and knew an auto would do me fine

    Get the belt done won't cost much and you'll get more use out of it
