    Default How do you know if Chain has been changed

    I'm sure this has been asked many times, I've done a search and can't find anything.

    I have a 2004 2.2 Direct Signum with 62K and it has full service history.
    Is there any obvious ways to know if the Chain has been changed?

    Thanks in Advance.

    The dealer who's done all the servicing maybe, but I was told there isn't a central Vauxhall database when I enquired after the service history for a car he's recently bought,

    As above, all VX keep are a record of jobs they have "paid" for under warranty
    If it is servicing then you need details of which dealerships were used, or the original receipts

    However, why would the chain need to be replaced?
    It would only need replacing in extreme cases (engine rebuild, etc)

    My chain was replaced because the tensioner failed.
