Re: Grand Scenic, worth a punt?

Thats true, but im a pessimistic sod and im expecting him to try to wriggle out of it.
We shall see.

After reading a few threads on here, most people seem to experience a rattly engine when its cold, then it seems fine.
Mine is rattly at idle even when warm, and also the revs dont seem to drop as quickly as they should. MPG today also seems to be suffering.
It all points to the dephaser doesent it.
Looking at the service history the car had a cambelt change just before we bought it, i wonder if that inadvertantly buggered up the dephaser or at least helped it on its way?
