Default Another tct question

Hi I'm guessing my new tct is rattling again but just want some reassurance before I buy a new one, last year my tct was rattling and got quite loud at one point so thats when I changed It, so I bought a new Honda one. About 2 months later it started rattling again and is getting pretty loud. Should I buy a ballade sports one this time and could it have caused problems or rattles else where? Thanks in advance.

What mileage is the car and has the chain or guides ever been changed?

I put a ballad one in after replacing 3 times with OEM, this was at 110k and its been quiet ever since so go ballad and will be fine.

You can look at this option too. More than 20 UK members have it without a single issue

My limited knowledge of customs import/export fees indicates you can ship your existing TCT to Billman and receive the rebuilt TCT with no customs costs. It's a rebuild as far as customs is concerned if the paper work is right. This will disable your car in the interim but the Billman unit appears bullet proof. And if you saved your earlier bad units there's one ready to send.
