Your Audi will require regular scheduled maintenance throughout its life to keep it in great condition. Read on to find out more about the key areas where maintenance of your Audi is most important.
The cambelt is one of the hardest working components in an engine. Made from a rubber based compound that deteriorates with time, it should be replaced in good time to avoid serious engine damage.
Cambelt wear is influenced by a number of factors including time, mileage and various sources of contamination therefore it’s essential that it’s replaced at recommended intervals.
We recommend that your cambelt is replaced every 5 years or 75,000 miles, whichever comes first*, to ensure optimum safety and performance.
Cambelt replacement is a complex job but by entrusting your car to us you can be confident that the work is being done by experienced Audi Trained Technicians. And if your vehicle is over three years old, visit our Affordable Servicing section for more information about our exclusive fixed price maintenance offers.

Brake fluid change
Like the rest of your Audi, your brakes are beautifully designed and engineered so that day in, day out, they bring you to a safe, smooth stop.
Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means it absorbs moisture over time, reducing the temperature at which the fluid boils. This in turn could result in increased stopping distances, reduced braking efficiency and potentially brake failure.
Your brake fluid should be replaced every two years* to ensure your Audi keeps stopping as well as it keeps going. And if your vehicle is over three years old, visit our Affordable Servicing section for more information about our exclusive fixed price maintenance offers.
* First brake fluid change at three years, subsequent changes at two years for vehicles built after June 2006.
Transmission fluid change
Your transmission system has been engineered to give you smooth, seamless gear changes. To ensure this is continuous, it is key that your transmission fluid is changed regularly.
Transmission fluid acts as both a lubricant and coolant to your transmission system. Everyday wear and tear breaks down the viscosity of transmission fluid making it less effective and potentially causing consequential damage to other components such as the engine.
To ensure your gear changes remain seamless, your transmission fluid should be changed according to your service schedule every 40,000 miles.
Your air-conditioning system purifies and dehumidifies the air inside your car, helping to prevent your windows from misting up. However, a build-up of bacteria and other airborne particles can reduce its efficiency, create unpleasant odours and trigger allergies.
To ensure your air-conditioning system is running at maximum efficiency we recommend that you have an air-conditioning service carried out every two years. Our Audi Trained Technicians will top-up the gas in the system as well as perform a detailed inspection of hoses and connectors as well as the cooling fan and compressor drive belt.
Between services an air-conditioning refresh is also available. This ultrasonic treatment disinfects any microbial, fungal and bacterial particles – ensuring that the air in your car is as pure as it should be.
