Like many other resellers, we used to source many of our timing belt and tensioner parts from large warehouse distributors. That has now changed! Blauparts is pleased to announce our partnership with Schaeffler Group Automotive, one of Germany's and Europe's largest industrial automotive companies who have been manufacturing timing belt components for V.A.G. (Volkswagen Audi Group) under the official O.E. INA brand for decades. Partnership with an O.E. manufacturer means Blauparts can ensure absolute quality control through a direct supply chain. Nearly all kits now contain a pre-assembled INA timing belt base kit. The timing belt and tensioners contained in the INA branded kit are the same O.E. quality parts as those directly supplied to the O.E. automotive manufacturer.
BONUS OFFER: $25 Serpentine Tensioner Arm
When purchasing a BLAUŽ Timing Belt Kit you're eligible to buy a serpentine tensioner arm with pulley for the special price of only $25. Note: Special offer valid on select applications only.
Many Audi owners are aware that timing belt replacement requires a complex repair procedure which includes the disassembly of the front of the engine. During disassembly, the serpentine belt tensioner arm has to be removed. This component has a pulley mounted to the arm with a bearing that's housed inside of it. The serpentine tensioner arm bearing typically has a service life span of 60,000-90,000 miles. In our own facility, approximately 75% of all vehicles we've serviced for timing belt replacement also needed the serpentine tensioner arm replaced. Why go through the frustration of having to change the arm months after completing your timing belt replacement? Or paying the extra 2-4 hours of labor it may take to access this related item? It makes sense to replace the serpentine tensioner arm during timing belt replacement, since it can easily be accessed with your vehicle in the service position.
