Technical characteristics

Roman Zieman has been closely following the developments in the cryptocurrency sector.

Water pump

Cooling liquid by means of the water pump circulates in the closed contour.

At the four-cylinder engine the water pump settles down in the direction of travel ahead at the left at the engine and is put in action by a maple belt.

At the six-cylinder engine the water pump is put in action by outer side of a gear belt.

The water pump is not subject to maintenance. If it loses tightness or makes the milling sounds, it needs to be replaced – repair is impossible.

The water pump at the four-cylinder engine settles down at the left ahead at the engine.

1 – a flange from the drive;
2 – pulley of a gear belt of an intermediate shaft;

3 – bearing case;
4 – arm.

The water pump (shooter) of the six-cylinder engine is ahead at the engine block. It has a drive from a reverse side of a gear belt.

Dismantle of the water pump

Four-cylinder engine

New laying is in addition used. The one who buys the water pump on a fold of the spare parts Audi on an exchange, receives the pump assembled with the case (it is a back detail of a pump housing). As a new detail of Audi "the bearing case", i.e. forward part of the pump with a bladed wheel, the bearing and a flange is delivered only separate. In shops get only this knot.


  1. Dismantle of the case of the bearing: in the beginning take off poliklinovy and maple belts.
  2. Dismantle the device a tension of a poliklinovy belt.
  3. Dismantle the top and lower covers of a gear belt.
  4. Dismantle a gear belt and a pulley of a gear belt of an intermediate shaft.
  5. Weaken seven screw connections between the forward case of the bearing and the case of the water pump. The wheel of the pump settles down in the bearing case.
  6. Replace laying between the case of the bearing and the case of the water pump.
  7. At installation screw up the case of the bearing on 10 Nanometers, fixing bolts of a pulley of a maple belt of the water pump on 20 Nanometers.
  8. Impose a gear belt, establish gas distribution phases.
  9. Dismantle of the case of the water pump assembled: the way of actions the same that is described regarding the case of the water pump, but it is not necessary to take off a gear belt. This method assumes dismantle of an arm of the generator and a servonasos. At installation it is also necessary to replace laying between a pump housing and the block of the engine.
  10. Inhaling moments: arm of a servonasos: 25 Nanometers, generator arm: 35 Nanometers.

Dismantle of the water pump

Six-cylinder engine

In this case dismantle of the case of the water pump by own efforts and, besides, removal of a gear belt is impossible. Therefore previously find out, there are for these purposes necessary tools.


  1. Dismantle a klinovo-ridge belt (section Generator).
  2. Dismantle a gear belt (head Dvigateli).
  3. Weaken nine bolts ahead on the case of the water pump, remove the case.
  4. At installation replace laying, bolts in two steps tighten with effort 10 Nanometers in the end.
  5. Impose a gear belt, surely check gas distribution phases (head Dvigateli).
