hi all, im a newbie to this website, so firstly, helllllloooooo!!!!
anyone out there interested in my St24 saloon? it has a rattle on the engine, been there for about 6 months now, still pulls like it should. bodywork is spot on and the interior is virtually unmarked. i'd hate to see it go but im buying another st24, but a hatchback version for the dog, otherwise i'd have it repaired. its being diagnosed as a timing chain tensioner that has worn, NOT AN END THATS GONE. the chain will never snap or anything like that so it would definately be a good buy for a d.i.yer! its in metallic panther black too, looke lovely when polised up.
if you are interested, e-mail or text me. 07941 891880 email@example.com.
car is in london, i'll e-mail pics if requested. cheers!!!!!!

Might be worth putting a price on it seen as it needs work doing on it. Saves people making offers that might embarrass you and them. No you are correct the chain will never snap but if the tensioner fails completely you might as well take the car to the scrap yard. A lot of cambelt failures are down to tensioner failure and a lot of people take false security from having a chain over a belt.
