Hi everyone
I’ve just purchased my first Range Rover evoque SD4 Pure tech 2.2l 2013 a few days ago, it’s developed a noise from the timing belt area when the engine is running but as soon as the accelerator is pressed the noise goes away, sort of squeaky ticking … hard to explain.
The garage I bought it from say they will sort it and will send recovery to fetch it, in case it’s the timing belt.
I’d like to know if my car is a timing belt or chain, how often the belt or chain should be replaced?
I have a video of the noise but unsure if you can post videos, as I am a new member - if anyone has any idea what it could be that would be helpful. Thanks

Hi and welcome. The 2.2 diesel has a timing belt which needs changed at 7 years or 112000 miles, whichever comes first so yours is overdue a change if it hasn't been done.

Hi
Thanks for the info, apparently the garage bought my car from an auction, I’ll ask if the timing belt has been done, as it’s over 7 years.
Thanks

You might be lucky and find that the service history has been put on line or the service record book is in the glove box. I believe it is hidden in early evoques. If at all unsure, I’d have the cam belt, water pump, idlers and tensioner changed and I’d have factored that in to the price I was willing to pay.

Thanks for the info - I’ll ask the garage if it has been changed and state I’ve checked and it should’ve been changed after 7 years.

Maybe you find service records here: Land Rover
Only insert your VIN
Good luck and welcome

If there's no record of it being replaced then it's best to be safe and assume it hasn't, the squeal or ticking could be anything really, could be teeth missing from the cambelt, waterpump bearings, idler pulley bearings, best to get it diagnosed if its been sold as having full dealer history then it will be documented, if the dealer said they serviced it before retailing it then they should have replaced the belt and associated parts as a matter of course IF there's no proof it's been done recently

Thanks everyone for the info it’s really appreciated, I’ve checked the service history from the above link and it hasn’t been serviced by Land Rover for a number of years … I’m hoping it’s been serviced by a garage other than Land Rover.
The garage have taken it back now to fix so hopefully should hear what the problem is. They told me “the boss” would ring me later re service and timing belt date check - it’s runner day today (whatever that is lol).

Lol,
Rule 1 is don’t trust the dealers unless they can prove it.
Rule 2, if they say they can prove it rule 1 applies.

Seriously though it is worth doing if not documented. Maltings off-road, Landrover specialists near Doncaster have just quoted me £450 plus VAT for a new cambelt kit, water pump, coolant change (due at 10 years) and a new auxiliary belt, all fitted and guaranteed so that gives you a guide price.

Haha re the rules 😁 but yes I totally agree

I managed to find the previous owner of the Range Rover on Facebook and nicely asked her if she’d had the timing belt etc done, she hadn’t so, with this info I was able to go back to the garage and ask for it to be done, as it was overdue, they agreed but weren’t too happy …they said when this had been done, if the noise was still there I would have to live with it cos they don’t know what it is and isn’t anything serious

Welcome to the EOC.
As you have found you have to be careful, luckily the garage are going to sort the problem just in time if it is the belt, idlers or water pump.
Good Luck

So selling you a car with an engine noise is fine then? Did they say they'd serviced it before selling or was it advertised with service history?

well done tracking down the previous owner. I had a similar experience with my first Evoque. How do they know it’s nothing serious if they don’t know what it is? You don’t have to live with anything, typical dealer BS by the sounds of it. It might be worth getting your local garage to give it the once over. My first one had loads of issues and I rejected it back to the dealer, under the 30 day right to reject, you pay a premium at a dealers for a reason.

If the noise was still there after they've done the cambelt then you'll have to live with it! So that releases them from any further responsibility then? I'd be making them fully aware right now via email for a record that if the noise is still there then it needs investigating otherwise you'll be rejecting the car under the consumer rights act because they sold you a car with an existing fault, that'll put it up em, they don't like it up em!

To be fair to the garage there wasn’t a noise when I picked it up, but after driving home 1.5 hours the noise developed, the previous owner did say there wasn’t a noise when she had it, she said only issue was the heated windscreen … only half of it heated up and it was ready for a service, her mechanic was doing the timing belt and service for £400 in may but then he died …. So she swapped the car …🧐

I told garage it needed a service and they said if I could pay £200 - half of the bill for timing belt and service … to be fair to them … I told them I didn’t want to pay anymore £ out, so they are just doing the timing belt.
My finance company said give them a chance to fix it and if they don’t then their after care team will step in and it will be fixed. someone else mentioned that I could return the car within 30 days … that is good

My son says I should have learned my lesson for the future 😁

Hi, whatever the garage say or the finance company please read up on the consumer rights act 2015. There is great info on Citizens Advice and you have one month/6 months to reject the car for a full refund as mentioned above.

I’ve just read the consumer rights when a car is faulty and wow that is very good.
I wouldnt recommend this garage to anyone as my experience has been stressful and irritating, I shall ring them when they open for an update … if they say the noise is still there and I’ll have to put up with it then they can have it back.
I’ve been nice up to now but unfortunately some people see this as being a pushover and take advantage … so no more Mrs nice … Mrs firm from now on 😃
