1.2 dig-t timing chain replacement

Post by Horsetooth » Sat Jul 06, 2019 8:40 am

Hi everyone
I currently own a 1.2 dig t juke 2015
Im currently getting the timing chain rattle from cold
Car has only covered 40k miles and looked after really well.
Im looking into carrying out the repair myself by replacing chain kit from Nissan, the timing chain kit is currently on ebay at £138.00 new and genuine which isn't a bad price.
My main question is.
Has anyone on this forum changed there own timing chain and can the timing chain cover be removed with the engine left in situ.
The timing chain cover does look a little tight in there but visually it looks possible.
If anyone has any input I would be grateful

Have you checked Nissan wont cover it? they are hiding a lot of 1.2 issues with free repairs.
