Johan, Stef- Common problem on other V8s, too. We changed one on my wife's GL 550 that quit working. Engine runs ok without them, but the cam timing is fixed, so power is definitely lessened. At least on the new ones, the variator gear does not usually take out the engine.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
