AFAIK both 1.4 & 1.6 VTi engines have timing chains with no replacement schedule specified.

Reasuring are you SURE

Chains are not a last forever item and can cost MORE than a belt if they go wrong !!

Do a search for prince engine on google

So a chain is not a very good alternative then?

My full warranty covers everything apart from consumables ie tyres/exhaust etc,so I'm assuming if the cam chain is a non scheduled replacement then it should be covered under warranty?

Replacement intervals are a guideline and are suggested maximums. I would expect the warranty company to refuse a claim as it could be classed as a wear & tear item i.e. subject to wear in normal use and therefore a consumable.

chain on daughters at 60k was fine, it was the tensioner that had gone weak that had destroyed the guide rail.

think anyone with a older vti should get it swapped out or checked, not very expensive to buy a new one, and its screwed in from outside the engine so shouldnt cost to much in labour.

this kind of thing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IaMmIabWH8c

Thanks for the heads up!!
Am assuming this tensioner is a common fault/issue?
I'm going to speak to my Peugeot dealer and see if they'll replace this while doing a full service free of charge,if I had to pay for the part,what is the part cost?
Thanks

you see this fault more so on the bmw mini sites (same engines more or less)

part is around 30, have read bmw uprated the tensioner so would guess peugeot have followed.
