Engine "tapping" - update

Just had a major job done on the 156 - timing belt kit, aux belt, rocker cover gasket, water pump and variator. Noise is gone so i think the timing belt tensioner was indeed at fault. almost 1000 euro! but 650 covered by the warranty company so not bad!

Re: Engine "tapping" - update

Got mine done today also. Replaced timing belt, all tensioners etc and aux belt.
Engine is MUCH quieter now and seems to pull a bit better but thats probably in my head !!

I would pull a bit better with the cam variator
