Quick fix for rattling VARIATORS??? anyone???
My variator rattles like hell, the cars got fairly new belts and I don't fancy splashing out £400 on getting it replaced.
A friendly specialist told me they're only prone to wear and don't fail or damage your engine in any way so there not much point changing them too often.
A while ago I heard the clattering is only due to a worn spring so sometimes the spring can be replaced or even cleaned to sort it out. This apparently can be done easily without even removing it from the engine, saving lots of time. If this is true it would be a godsend and save £££s.
Does anyone else have any info on this or instructions on what needs to be done as I'm sick of that bloody noise, would be very gratefull. Thanks.
