It seems the timing chain guides on the wifeís supercharged BINI have shit themselves. I did the tensioner a while ago but last night she has been out and came back reporting it sounding like a diesel at idle. Not a bad description to be fair.

Anyway after any info really on what sort of a job it is to sort it. Not looking forward to it as I know access is a swine in anything Iíve had to do to it.

been nearly 4 years since I last done one, but IIRC, front end into service mode, OSF inner arch liner, engine mount, cam cover, timing cover and your in.

obviously im simplifiying quite a bit, its a lot of work, but i dont recall it being particularly hard.

As i recall you can get away without the timing tools but i'd buy them to be safe given how cheap they are.

the big issue youll face is if the guides have been pounded to bits, the sump and oil pickup are likely full of debris, at that point youll need to remove the sump, which IIRC is doable in situ but pretty unplesant.

do a full timing chain kit on it.

they aren't to bad to do but make sure you change all the seals and you'll need a harmonic damper puller. make sure it has m6 bolts with it as most dont come with them.

also drop the sump chances are the timing chain guide has broken and ended up in the sump and the oil pick up will end up getting blocked.
