Inside Line: Dayco

All diesel-powered versions of the Audi A1 are fitted with Dayco High Tenacity (HT) ‘white’ timing belts as the original equipment fitment, so the only way to offer a genuine like-for-like replacement is to fit a Dayco HT timing belt kit. Dayco HT timing belt kits also come with added benefit of the Long Life +1 Year warranty, which safeguards motorists for a total of three years from the date of installation.

Originally developed by Dayco for the 1.6 diesel unit, the current range of diesel engines used throughout the VW/Audi group and therefore in the A1, also feature a toothed belt driven oil pump, which runs in a bath of oil. The advantages of the system include a reduction in engine friction, quieter operation and reduced engine emissions.
