    So is this something that just needs an adjustment, or is it a major ball ache to sort out?

    You should sort it out asap.

    If you haven't done the chain kits on yours. It should be done before it goes and then you're up for a rebuild

    Mmm. According to the book the timing belt/chain was done in 2013 and 10,000 km ago. Might be best to just do it all again so I know what I'm dealing with.

    Do people generally import the kits or use aftermarket?

    I've only ever used genuine. I have in the past ordered an aftermarket kit but ended up only using the chain itself from the kit.

    contact autovaux in the uk to order kits. (do both timing and balance chain kits)

    Sorry got your previous post confused with Arkos.

    Can you post a video up of the noise you have.

    It's essentially the same noise. Mine is a tad quieter but the same noise.

    can you pick out where the noise comes from? near injectors? above the airbox?
