    The 2.0t is a rattly engine but there's a common problem with the timing chain tensioner. just done the job on mine a few weeks ago

    It can be depends if everything goes o.k.
    I had a hell of a job to take the camshaft adjuster bolt off, bolt very tight, prone to rounding and an arse to get at if it rounds.
