timing belt noise
#1
hello ,I have a 2014 xtr 1.6hdi and there is a rattle/scrapping noise I thought it was coming from drive belt tensioner, but Citroen have advised me its coming from timing belt, they say there is a tech bulletin about debris coming off water pump onto belt and causing this, the car has only done 29000 miles and is still in warranty, if it turns out to be the tensioner worn out do you think that will be covered under warranty thanks westie

We have replaced a few because of this noise, the belt tends to have a rusty appearance when removed.,often seems worse on low mileage cars.
Can't really comment on the warranty situation .
