3.2 JTS Timing Chain Issue?
« on: November 13, 2020, 02:32:37 PM »
Guys I think I need to replace the timing chain on my 87000km 2007 Brera. At startup get a rattling sound - usually disappears after a bit but occasionally still  noisy after a 50km run on the highway.

Ive got a replacement chain kit - any suggestions as to a good WS to do the repair? Im in Northern Tasmania but if necessary would bring Bella across to Melbourne for this job. She doesnt use a drop of oil (Selenia) and is still clean between servicing by the way.

Thanks in advance for your help.
