Hi Bernd --

Sorry to hear about your troubles, and I hope Keman's suggestion works out 
for you.

I am curious about something else though: My '01 S4 is at 65K, and I was 
recently told to get the timing belt replaced--I checked my 
documentation, and verified it's not supposed to be done until 90K.  Did 
you hear anyone else telling you you had to get this done early?

BTW, why did you get your clutch replaced--did you feel it going, or was 
it something you did since you were at 90K?

Finally, hoiw much did the timing belt and water pump work set you back?

 i needed a new clutch and with 90000 miles the shop replaced the timing
belt to.

 they also replaced the auxiliary water pump.
 so now the car lost some power or at least it feels that way (can't get
the traction control kick in on wet road).

 is there any thing they could have done wrong.

 the engine runs smooth and no check lights are on.
