The Audi a4 water pump is not that hard of a job for an experienced technician. At my shop we charge about 6 hours labor for the timing belt, water pump, tensioner, tensioner pulley, and idler pulley. -- All these things should be replaced at the time of the water pump. Only one special tool is required; it is a bar used to hold the cams in time while the belt is off. If you are not an experienced tech, I would not recogmend trying to perform the job. One small mistake and you could end up with bent valves, assuming you have the 30v model. .
