My friend has a problem with is a6 engine, the bolt that hold the timing belt tensioner is getting loose, it seems that the threads are stripped out.

Any idea how to fix this up????

id time cert over helicoil.

but both will work.
x2 most of the time i helicoil, just because i have almost every set from 6m-12m, but a time cert would be ideal.

Thanks guys

What I did was I tapped the hole to make it bigger and instead of a bolt I used a stud that I got made on a lathe.
Sounds like a good idea, I´ll talk with my friend.

Btw if he does do this, make sure that the end that will hold down the tensioner is short because you wont be able to see the timing marks on the timing cover if it's too long.
