Almost everytime I have bought a used Audi I have found the dealer where it
was either bought/serviced and gotten the maintenance records, including the
translation of the codes.  For some reason I have never seen a report that
shows the codes & their translations, the dealer had to manually do the
translation.  Maybe by now someone has gotten you the translation; your
other choice is to find a good Audi dealer service writer and ask them (most
know the common ones by heart).  Dealers seem to vary in their adherence to
the codes once out of warranty, but the warranty stuff is fairly well
enforced by Audi and therefore standardized.....SLM

P.S.  Sorry I don't have the belt changing code for a V8; mine was done at
an independent.
