    Default A Little Tinkle In The Morning

    When i start my Siggy 2.0T from cold there is a tinkling noise once the car has warmed up it goes. Now I know that the pulley and tensioner mod need doing but dont think its that. Was thinking maybe timing chain. What are you thoughts?

    rattle is the first sign of chain trouble, just had mine done including balancer chain and all rails and pullys and everything else cost me £700 with a service too. my guide rails had smashed off causing alot of friction damage.

    I thought it was a constant rattle if there's a problem with the chain and made no difference hot or cold?

    Maybe it is the pulley and tensioner then, cause it definately goes when the engine is warm.

    I had my pulley and tensioner replaced, the symptoms I had where a horrible rattle, like the car was pulling itself apart at low rev's, like you get if you pulled off in 2nd or 3rd etc from a standing start. I wouldnt have thought it was this thou.

    Here's my rattle threads HERE
