I have the same issue. I will never buy another audi! Or, recommend it to another person. The paint is pealing inside the care trim.... junk.

Replaced valve cover gaskets but I think still leaking from camshaft tensioner.make damn sure valve cover gasket mating surfaces are clean as a whistle before installing them especially where "v" shaped part of gasket sits.rtv sealent is a must have for that spot.

It is a consistent problem after replacement of a new valve cover gasket. I have replaced it two times.

I have a leaking valve cover and a broken crankcase pipe (which runs off the back of the valve cover and along the side of the engine to the oil filter assembly) on a 2005 A4 1.8T? I'm also having the timing belt changed (63000 miles).
