That's unusual.Its a loud rattle noise, 100% coming from the timing chain area!
Can the tensioner be replaced fairly easily, or is it still a big labour-intensive job like the chain?My chain wasn't making any noise as it stretched and showed the p0016 code / engine light. However I didn't wait too long to get it changed.
I had a rattle noise that kept getting louder over a couple of weeks within a year of getting the chain replaced, garage said it was the tensioner which I presume was supplied with the new timing chain kit, they ended up replacing it free.
Not sure, I imagine it would be the same process as doing the timing chain without actually removing and refitting a new chain.Can the tensioner be replaced fairly easily, or is it still a big labour-intensive job like the chain?
I'd have thought it'd be the latter, so getting it replaced for free sounds amazing.
I used to think that was the case for a good number of years.Thanks for the reply, going to see an 08 hopefully this week and was hoping the timing chain was just an issue with earlier 2.2 brera's.
