Just wondering if you guys can be some guidance. I recently got me a 156 with the 2,5V6 engine. Now when I bought it, the dealer and I had an arrangement the cambelt change should be done or no deal, as the service was due within one or two thousand k's of delivery...
So they did it with he invoice to prove and all the old parts, but I noticed on the invoice, no tensioner is included. So I went to them to query it and the say due to a heck of a backlog apparently, they couldn't get anywhere. But the did check it thouroughly and replaced the bolts holding it in place, saying it's fine and should last till the next cambelt change. Now I know the original change was scheduled for every 100 000kms, but was reduced to 60 000kms. Will I hear the unmistakable whining sound of the tensioner should it's time be around the corner or does it just let go without warning? The first cahnge was done at 74 000 kms though, 14 000 later than due, so do you think it's a calculated risk or should it be done nonetheless. Everyting else was changed though, waterpump, belt and idlers.
