Mike DuPre, the maintenance schedule for this model, available here, says "

Maintenance schedule

Timing Belt inspect 40,000 & 80,000 mile

Timing Belt replace 75000 ( recent revision from Audi It used to be 105,000 miles.)

Here is a great DIY for the replacement. There is no routine interval when to change your water pump. Hope this helps, good luck.

You should replace the timing belt between 50K-75K miles, you should replace the water pump when you replace the timing belt as well. If you do the job yourself, make sure none of the sprockets turn when the belt is removed, or the offset in timing will damage the engine.
