View Here : Mini R56 Timing Chain Replacement Cost
Timing Chain/Tensioner Replacement on 2nd generation Mini Cooper Often referred to as the “ Death Rattle Noise ”, this audible sound coming from the engine bay is the timing chain in your R55, R56, or R57.
My 2009 Mini Clubman is with the Grand River BMW dealer for replacement of the timing chain. It's been 4 days and the dealer loaned a car today and looking at charging over $4000 for the repair costs. Mini Canada is taking advantage of Canadians and the weak lemon law.
A sign of the chain being stretched is an engine rattle. 1320 MINI have put together an all in kit of all the parts needed for a timing chain swap, including new chain, guides, bolts, tensioner and other necessary parts needed for the swap. An ideal kit for all you DIYers wanting to changing the timing chain at home.
