Re: 156 JTS issues at 24k service
Edwin. Mines a March 03 Car and I have just had the front suspension Arm changed under Warrenty, next month they are doing the front Anti Roll Bar bushes,again under Warrenty. Last Year they did the rear control arm bushes. The Tensioner WILL be covered and if that causes the Belt to be damaged THAT should be coverred as well. My TS had exactly the same problem.
You need to lean on the dealers and stand your ground.
The position on Discs is less clear, I was once told that AR will change discs on a new Car up to 12500 Miles, after that you are on your own. Pads are a subject to wear and tear, so you will have to foot the Bill on that. It may be worth your while changing the Pads to Ferodo 2500 (I Think), they are reputed to be much better than normal spec AR pads.
Incidently mine has done 32500 now, no new Pads or Discs at either end.
