I believe it maybe a good idea to change out the timing chain and tensioner. Does anyone here have the proper tools, willing to loan out or rent. I hate to buy a one time use tool and the cheap ones seem dicey at best.
FSI or TSI? FSIs have timing belts if I understand correctly. I have everything needed for the TSI chain replacement, but I'm not sure if the tools are the same for TSIs and FSIs (mine is a TSI with the timing chain). I'm here in the Raleigh area, shoot me a pm if you're interested or have any questions. I did this job about a year ago, and it's time consuming but otherwise not unreasonably difficult.
