Variator Ticking - Warranty Fix or Not?
My 147 2 litre TS has what I believe is ticking from the variator. I have only had the car for 3 months and it came with a 4 star WMS 6 month warranty. It also came with the cambelt done... So, a couple of questions:
1) As I have only done 3000 miles since getting the car, how long can the variator last?? I obviously dont want to leave it another 33k miles / 2 1/2 years but know that cambelt + all other bits etc should be changed when the variator is replaced... Could be pricey
2) If I get it done sooner or later, is the variator called anything else as my warranty doesn't specifically state the variator...
Cheers for any help,
