Hello I have a 2005 AUDI Allroad 2.7 bi-turbo – alternator is not working – no output voltage – can it be replaced without doing the front end service position removal of front end?

cramesor1 says:

Hi, I have a question.
Can I get to the passenger side cam chain & tensioner (even reple the tensioner) without removing the timing belt / cover and items in the front?

kellilovski says:

thanks for your guidance,I having both 2.8 and 2.7 c5a6 as well,itโ€™s really helpful and gave me lots confidence to start do those things by myself which it could save a lot of labour fees

Ramon Ibarra says:

I'm trying to keep up with your videos on Audi A6… My turbos are leaking oil but can't find your videos on it

Jeffrey Walker says:

FYI: The driver's side intake cam seal on the rear is a different part than the front seals. The cam rotates in the rear seal counterclockwise, whereas it's clockwise on the front seals. All of the new VW Audi cam seals are PFTE without a spring under the lip and are supposed to be installed DRY.

Don't install the valve covers until AFTER you get the new timing belt installed. Then rotate the engine by hand at least two rotations, then reinstall the cam locking bar, check and recheck the timing on the cam marks. Count the chain link pins. If after that you're sure the timing is right, you can then install the valve covers.

The timing chain tensioner plastic shoes should have been replaced when the tensioners were out. These wear out, get brittle and break off, leaving plastic bits in the head and down in the oil pan, cause metal to metal sliding contact between the timing chain and tensioner, cause extra slack in the chain, and then the chain can then jump a tooth or two and cause the valves to collide with the piston tops. Yes I am speaking from experience. Happy wrenching.

Bigbird Johnson says:

Really helped! I have a 2000 audi a6 2.7t that I just got recently and when I pulled the spark plugs there was oil on them, thank you for being so informative and detailed

Leandros Komninos says:

thanks, detail is helpful, doing a repair of A6 with cam belt failure.

brushie _jp says:

I keep hearing these "myths" that you can replace the camshaft chain tensioner gaskets on the driver side without taking the timing belt off, the more I see this, the more I wonder how much those people have suffered just to do that, if they did. Since you've done this at least twice now from your videos, do you think that's also an impossibility?

ferkemall says:
