Engine timing

Asked by May 18, 2018 at 04:25 AM about the 2008 BMW X5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

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
