Can anyone let me know who makes the factory timing belt (ATW) or how to identify it? I'm trying to figure out if the belt was ever changed on a car we recently picked up. I checked under the cover and the belt is branded Gates and looks to be in pretty good shape.

Any help? Thanks!

the fact that you could read something off of the belt is a good sign it isnt original

That's a plus. I'm close to having all the maintenance caught up and this is driving me nuts. I've been hounding everyone I can find on the carfax for info, lol.

The OEM belt will have VW logo and Audi rings on it as well as the Audi part number, if any printing remains that is.
