Hi

Does anyone know of a independent garage that can replace a timing chain on V6 3L 2014 coupe petrol.

Hopefully in the South East Maidstone, Chatham, Sidcup, Dartford other areas considered.

I don't have any issues at the moment. Im considering just for peace of mind. But, not finding anyone can do them being a V6.

Thanks

Try @alexanderfoti , he runs AMF Mercedes specialist in Tonbridge , Kent . He is also on the forum
 
Been quoted 3k one option 6k other option.

So, looking at what i can find out there is no service interval. I.e change oil every 12k.

Im going to assume unless anyone can tell me, otherwise. This timing chain is meant to last the lifetime of the vehicle.

You get warning signs .i.e noisy stsrt up, etc plus you should get an error code.

Has anyone in the UK replaced a toming chain on a 3l E400? At that cost?

Other chains/cambelts on other motors are only a few 100 pounds say between 350-800 So due to the expense, its got to be a fairly good quality build.

Ive owned other V6s and not had any issues but had no idea if a chain were to become problematic it would be so expensive. Thats not yo say the price given isnt a fair price.
 
I think at that price I would be leaving it alone until there were problems.
 
You might be 'over thinking' the chain thing . My M113 V8 has chains ....it also has 151 thousand miles on it . Admittedly the M113 engine is becoming a legend in its own lunchtime for being robust.

Not sure if the job would just be chains , you would replace the guides . You would be putting new chains on 'old' sprockets which will have 'mated' with the chain. A new chain could have accelerated wear to match the (harder) sprockets.

How about just changing the engine oil more often and just enjoy the car.
