Cam Variator Valve
my 147 has just been serviced and at the same time, I wanted a problem to be chaekced. When the car starts for the 1st time, it sometimes struggles going into 1st gear. The car will move forward, then all power will go (as if I changed to neutral) I'll then here a banging underneath the car and the car seems to then find first gear.
I've been told that this problem involves a replacement Cam Variator valve and may cost around £800. Im based in London and was wondering if this is correct?
I was just after a 2nd opinion really?
