A local company from Girraween brought in their Mazda CX7 which required replacement of the timing chain. Unfortunately this is a common problem for this model and Mazda dealers charge around $2,500 to do this job. Also most independent garages don’t have the tools required to do this job and had turned them away before they contacted me.
I was able to replace the timing chain using all genuine parts for less than half the cost the local Mazda dealer quoted.
It’s a big job that involves around a full days work but I’m pleased to report that the CX7 is back on the road with a new and much quieter timing chain.
