Hi all has anybody ever changed this on their car? If so i take it its a time consuming job? thanks
45 minutes, not a lot of work really, just a bit fiddly and it has to be precise
remember to use liquid gasket when putting it back together properly, otehrwise itll leak
Thanks all though im not doing it, but u was under the impression its an expensive job labour wise?
bump for anybody who has done this? is it really 45 mins work? thanks
Its about that for a good enthusiast mechanic
Thanks mate is the part expensive,?
it depends on what engine code you have
Hi mate i have an AMK S3, Basically my car had an EML light on got the code read by RAC then had a specialist look at it,
They said that i need a new CAMSHAFT ADJUSTER as my timing was checked it was spot on, the wiring was spot on, but the actutal ADJUSTER need replacing,
i have had no other symptoms, no funny idle etc the only thing is the car not performing as it should recently, but i thought this might be MAF but no other codes were logged, so its prob to do with this,as it has a fault,i think this is the variable vavle timing thing? They said it was strange as they usually just fail completely which mine has not?
Anyway car has not moved untill i get the problem fixed, but i nearly fainted when i got the quote lol,
so it will have to wait on the drive one more week i think,
I was just wondering labour time and parts involved as i dont really know alot about mechanics allthough i definately trust the guys going to do it etc, I ji just thought wow when i heard it lol, so surely there must be alot of labour iinvovled or the part must cost some?? thanks
i would be interested in the part number too!
