Re: Checking cam chain tension on 2011 1.2 NON TSi

Thank you lichel for that, the more I searched the more confusing it all became so I turned here knowing that someone would set me right! Much appreciated. Next job will be to sort her front shocks as I noticed that the front end bounces a few times when pressures applied at the bonnet end :shock: :...

Checking cam chain tension on 2011 1.2 NON TSi

Hi all, so just finally got round to servicing the daughters first car and just checking anything else and thought I'd have a look on HonestJohn where it mentions that the cam chain seems to have an issue with the tensioner which fails at about 60000 miles?

Re: Service indicator question from an old confused eejit

Ah! I may have answered my own question, thought i'd look at my old posts and one of my first ever was the same confusion about that number, so looking at that then it appears that -99 means its 99 days overdue, and by that logic it's 1600 miles overdue! I am an eejit!

Recommended Garage / person for Retrofits in Bedfordshire?

I hope this is in the right place and quite happy for it to be moved if not.

Does anyone know if there's someone / a garage in the Bedfordshire area that does any retrofit work?

I don't want a lot, but do fancy footwell lights fitting both front and rear as a start?
