pre tensioner fail!


#1 Feb 4, 2013
Late December 2012 my cam belt pre tensioner failed, the car is now on its forth return to the garage as the pre-tensioner stud keeps coming undone and hence slackening off the cam belt, luckily no damage to engine YET!!! does anyone have any ideas why this keeps happening...
