The oil shouldnt have anything to do with the mechanical ratchet part of the tensioner failing though, if that part is right it shouldnt need any oil pressure at all, to not cause any rattle at start up.
Even if the wrong grade was used youd think that the tensioner would still be under oil pressure ok so that the chain pressure is not all forced on to the ratchet mechanism ALL the time while running....
The mk7 tensioner just looks the same as the shit mk6 type. Is that what happend to these mk7 tensioners, could it just be pushed back passed the ratchet mechanism
Why dont they go back to the ratchet leg type one
