Re: 95 A6 Timing Belt and knocking?

<< I had to do the timing belt on my 93 90cs
quattro(sold). I had it done at 72,000mi. My mechanic
whom I trust enough that I drive from mass to vermont
to get the work done was very skeptical and told me to
always keep an eye on it,even though AoA has it at
90,000, he said that he has seen them go as early as
60,000 so he recommends that it get done every 60,000. >>
I suppose that there's about as many opinions on when to replace timing belts
as there are listers. I just had mine done at 156k. The last time it was
replaced was at 55k. I visually examined the belt and could not detect any
deterioration. Of course, that doesn't mean there wasn't any.
