I live in Barbados in the Caribbean and I am the owner of a 2005 BMW 116i; chassis no is WBAUF12050PN23697; engine no A077H353. It is manual; Petrol.
The problem I have relates to a rattling noise my BMW makes on starting. I took it to my mechanic who suggested i ordered a timing chain; tensioner and tensioner guide. These were installed but the noise is still there.
Can anyone tell me what may be the problem and solution. Thank you very much.
