Help for mate please gents

Mate has a 147 1.6 lusso which he purchased after a trip as a passenger in mine,

he bought it privately but it still has final years warranty on it. Recently the car has sounded very tinny and has lost shed loads of power.

he took it to the local dealer who have diagnosed the variable inlet variable timing to be knackered. at a cost of 450 + labour to resolve.

What is the VIVT and what does it do ? should it be covered under warranty ???? thanks all

That's the famous phase variator on the inlet camshaft, responsible for valves aperture at different revs. The decrease in power shows that it's not working properly and, even if it wont get worst then it is now it should be repaired.

And yes, it must be covered under warranty.

No idea what you are talking about, but most definately sounds like a warranty thingy to me wink
