Re: HELP! Weird Noise from Engine QQ 1.6 diesel J11

I was quoted £2700 + VAT from Nissan told them no chance, but Nissan has a 12 month warranty they said, Ebay items have 2 years I said and left. Got the job done locally for around £1500 apparently its a pig of a job with about 8-10 hours labour.
