Question about 2008 BMW 1 Series
Bought this car a few months ago, things are starting to go wrong, I've already had to have the handbrake fixed, but this has now already come loose again, but this belt that clicks or ticks as it goes round is worrying me, is this the next thing to snap?? If it does will it cause any damage to the car?
The timing belt is crucial. And a broken belt can cause bent valves and serious engine damage. Since you state that the belt tensioner was replaced, was the timing belt replaced as well? I assume you have a warranty, and I highly recommend you use it. A new noise coming from where a major repair was just completed is never a good sign.
