Re: New Tyres

Michelin crossclimate plus, just had them fitted and really great for this time of year.

Have a read about them, and a couple of people i work with, can vouch for them.

Re: Noise / rattle when engine cold

Hello again, Update on my previous posts. The car is now in the dealership again. I had feared this would be a difficult, un-rewarding process trying to get any where The service manager rang me up and there were three strands to his comments. Its only a ticking sound. Its caused by the fuel pump I...

Re: Mixing tyre brand/type

Tirerack advise against mixing types majorly. But, if need be, put the better tyres on the rear.

I don't think town driving would be affected majorly with different types of tyres.

I'll get the full set in January anyway.

Hopefully it isn't too bad then. Doesn't mean the issue isn't the same.

Re: 1.2 Engine Tapping - is this normal (VIDEO)

Definitely not normal. My QQ had a similar noise and it was the timing chain and the tensioner that required changing. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk Thanks, was this covered under warranty? Did it totally fix the tapping? If your QQ is still under warranty, then it shouldn't cost you anythin...

Re: Mixing tyre brand/type

Hi Dave, I've had a read of these pages and Michelin had a pretty good one too, thanks for the links. They strongly recommend (and I agree) that across an axle the same tyre must be used. If I was going to mix, my all season cross climate would go on the rear of the vehicle as they have no drive. My...

Mixing tyre brand/type

Hi all, I've been doing a fair amount of reading about tyres. On my QQ I've got 17" alloys currently with 215/60/17 continentals. My front 2 need changed, my rear 2 are at 4/6 mm. I understand the contisports are summer tyres, but we're now coming into winter and was looking into getting some all se...

Re: Noise / rattle when engine cold

Could you give us an update if you have one? So they looked at mine yesterday... They did a diagnostic, a remap and another diagnostic and who knows what else. In the end they decided I need a whole new engine. They told me that there was more than 25% difference in pressure between the cylinders! ...
