2016 Q7 Timing Chain replacement


New member
Hello all.

2016 q7 4M 3.0 diesel. 170,000km.

The car needs the timing chains / tensioner / guides etc replaced.

I took the car to a mechanic today, (who incidentally was the worse mechanic I’ve been to in my life, and that’s saying something), who quoted me $12,000.

Given that’s just ridiculous, I wanted to throw the question out there to ask if anyone has had this work done on their audi, and if so what rough cost they paid, and better still where they got the work done.

I’m out in the eastern suburbs of Victoria.

Alternative is I just do it myself, but the car has an extended warranty so my preference is to go that route if I can.

Thanks in advance.
