    As above am changing the variable valve timing unit tomorrow and wondered if anyone knew what level to torque the bolts up to ... also going to put a new rocker cover gasket on so rocker bolt settings too if anyone knows them?

    tried haynes and search function but no joy ...

    any ideas chaps?

    many thanks :o.k:

    from memory, all the bolts were 10nm, including the bolts securing the tensioner, haynes had all the answers though but the liquid gasket part is crucial so pay attention to that
