Comments on how to fix timing chain on a FAW DS 4S:

Sadly, my 2003 model has a door that makes the regulator completely inaccessible this way. Nevertheless, this gives me some good clues, plus I've removed the skin of the door and there seems to be some level of access that way.

Thanks for the video. My d button fried. Ordered a new switch and immediately smoked and fried it when I plugged it in. I guess I have a hot ground somewhere. Thinking if I replace the motor it might fix the issue. Can I take the motor out without taking out the regulator or are those bolt heads on the inside.

Did he cut the wires?

Hmm its not the same as the others, more like the older type. Compacted nicer than the cable types :D You could tap into you battery pack for a lower voltage, might be nicer for alignment of the holes in some of the types you remove, a bit slower.

03:56 - Hmmmm...where's the video explaining the shorting to 18VDC trick? I like the idea, but...uh...tutoria l? :) Great video and helpful otherwise!

Nice video! I’ve got one question - do we have to remove whole egr valve or such cleaning as you’ve done is enough?
Edet
Is this the same as the 2020 Countryman?

I can't remember, but it's easily 15-20 for the instrument cluster, and another 5 or more for HVAC. I'd say 30 should be a good amount with a few spares!

Thank you omg I’ve been having coolant problems in my 04 frontier for like a year I could never find where it’s coming from but my truck leaks and smokes from where it’s dripping on exhaust I would guess? Any ideas on what else it could be

Wowww no video of the light output? Welldone..

I just did this but on the left side, it's having a hard time screwing in to where the orientation has the writing perfectly horizontal. So it is a little tilted, but not super noticeable. Will this cause problems? And any advice on how to fix it?
Asaph
IS there a chance you could do a guide on removing the valve cover? or is it ok to just go ahead and undo the fuel pipes, pressume theyre under pressure i dont know? Also great guide, i'll be looking to do this shortly.
