We are seeing quite a few timing chain related issues with late model 1.8 and 2l TSFI engines from VW and Audi. One good thing to look at when servicing these engines is to check if the chain has elongated. It is a fairly simple process and can really save some trouble down the line because when the chain goes, it's a major! I have included a short how to below.

Did you know? We stock a wide range of window regulators for BMW, Audi, VW, Skoda, Citroen and Peugeot?
Service note The main reasons that regulators fail is because of the rubber drying out and not being lubricated and because of dirt, moss, and mould building up. Regulators are often replaced without the system being cleaned out. When we do these repairs in the workshop we always take a minute to lubricate the window guides and let the customer know if more action needs to be taken. Give us a call next time you need a window regulator you'll be happy with our competitive prices and quick delivery.
