My x5 went in with the slightest rattle, they concluded that the timing was
slightly out, so they say they reset it, they put everything back and rea the
engine but now the noise is amplified ten fold !
They now say they need to replace the timing chain,guides and also the
hydrolic tensioner !!
A few thousand pounds!!!
Is this right, I have been told that you can not reset the timing on the engine
Mine broke driving at 20 mph, (2008 BMW X5) - after getting it recovered to a BMW garage they confirmed timing chain broke - £2700 to strip - engine has to come out as this is NOT a service item. Lots of damage - all valves, cams etc. bill is around £7500 as they managed to salvage the head. Have written a long letter of complaint to BMW demanding they cover this. Replacement parts, chain tensioner, chain are modified, proving this is a know design falut!
