Mini Cooper: Loose timing chain

Asked by Tristan Brinkkotter

My Mini Cooper has a faulty timing chain. I made this point when I took my car in for servicing in November and nothing was done. Within a week or so my car began to stall, it was checked again and I was told needed a solenoid replaced. In March, the engine light came on — I was told the timing chain was loose — which I'd pointed out four months earlier.

I have been in touch with BMW Group and am told all repairs are being done under warranty.
