Replacing water pump and timing belt on 2000 A6 2.7l, DIY auto repair

So, Audi's are a pain in the ass to work on.

Just to get that out of the way. But on the bright side I have a more intimate relationship with my car, and a higher tolerance for how far I can take her apart now.

Because I have not shed my need for a vehicle, I had to fix her overheating problem. So to the internet I went and found myriad sires for Audi repair, few of which related to my particular issue. There was one though. And did very well describing the dis-assembly for my water-pump replacement.

Because I am willing to do the work myself I saved over $600. YAY DIY!!!

For those wanting more information on how to replace the water pump, thermostat, and timing belt in a 2000 Audi A6 2.7l:

It's been too long since I posted

Sorry, I've found my days and weeks full of too many things. We've had two camping trips consisting of 5-7 days each (stories to follow, eventually) and a bunch of working on my car and finishing my welding class. If anyone still comes by to check, this apology is for you.
