Re: Noisy Engine ?
Piece of cake to change the followers, always assuming you have the cam belt off and the cams out at the time! Shame they didn't do it while you were having the belt done becasue they are going to have to do it all over again :-(
However, it really annoys me when garages just randomly swap bits becasue they don't really have a clue what the problem is in the first place. Its the customer who ends up paying.
But - if you went to the garage and said "change the belt and variator" and thats what they did then no problem. If you said to them "my engine is noisy, fix it please" and its still noisy then they have messed up and additional work should be at their cost as they have charged you for work that wasn't needed.
