    Camshaft chain and tensioner kit

    Started to get a noise from the cam chain/tensioner and had a look on eBay and found one listed for the AJL with VC gasket for £260. Was wandering if any knows of a decent supplier that does the kits at a reasonable price ??

    Tangerine do you sell the kits at euro's if so a price on that would be great.

    You probably wont need a chain. I didn't bother and it's all good. Don't forget a new cover gasket though.

    Ahh well, two birds, one stone and all that. I did mine not so long back, it was at the point of total failure. The chain had worn away at the bottom runner which had caused bits of it to snap off and the chain was running on the metal bracket underneath! A few miles more and I think it would have failed totally and the cams would have stopped talking to each other.
    If you need any advice on doing the job give us a shout.

    My old A8 2.8 had a cam chain tensioner guide failure. The sound of machine guns came to mind!

    A new tensioner later, and all was good.

    Only thing I'm concerned about is doing the job without the special tool can it be done without or is definitely needed to do the job or could I use something else from the selection of tools in the workshop at work ??

    The new unit should come with one fitted. I think you could do it without but you may need 3 hands.

    Looking at the picture on the one mentioned above it looks like it does come with the tool so a bonus at £65 if it does.
