Spoke to the guys at VW Crosshills and asked if there was any chance i could drop my car off a week early as it really started to sound bad (even worse than the video i posted).

30 mins later called me back and said "yeah sure - we will wiggle some stuff about and get you one by this afternoon sir" - so i now have this baby, 1.2 Polo. Not a bad car apart from the cornering.

So they have my car booked in for the 7th - 9th. So the worry of it going bang is over  :rolleyes:

PS - the guys @ VW crosshills = Amazing Service

Snoopy, are you able to post dates/year and details of tensioner revisions in this thread.  Might help newcomers find out what version their new/potential car might have.

I know a search would probably bring up the info but handy to have it in here with all the other vital info.

Thanks

I left my car there on the 30th December and drove back to MK in a polo R Line, looks great but no much go.

Glad Crosshills VW are looking after you, just a shame that the chain is on back order, will update when I get my car back sometime this month.

I would if I knew them exactly,
I posted on page 1 a quote from mike about the latest tensioner revision release date been 01/05/2012.
I posted on page 5 post 3 from me that the first revision tensioner date as quoted as been fitted from production week 20 2010. (17/05/2010)


I cleaned up my post on page 5 to make it easier to read and highlighted the main posts and headings.

slightly off topic, but I've just checked Euro Car Parts for a timing belt service kit and they don't provide one. do VW provide these?

if so, does anyone have the part numbers and an idea of the price? cheers
