Hi All

2008 159 2.2 JTS 125000 km

Courtesy of the multiecuscan I've collected the following history.

9-Mar-2019
P0016 - Phase synchronisation (exhaust)/revs
P0013 - Phase variator actuator on intake shaft

9-Apr-2019
P0013 - Phase variator actuator on intake shaft
P0016 - Phase synchronisation (exhaust)/revs

23-Apr-2019
P0016 - Phase synchronisation (exhaust)/revs Signal Low

03-Aug-2019
P0016 Phase synchronisation (exhaust)/revs

05-Oct-2019
P0016 - Phase synchronisation (exhaust)/revs Signal Low

02-Apr-2020 (after sitting for a long time due to driving other cars then coronavirus etc)
P0016 - Phase synchronisation (exhaust)/revs - Fatal
P0013 - Phase variator actuator on intake shaft

Is anyone picking up a noteworthy trend in the above?
I can hear a mechanical rattling noise in the engine bay at idle suggesting chain wear, supported by the P0016 and P0013 codes.
I'm not a spirited driver so I can't really tell if power is degraded or not - but drives perfectly well.
I service every 5000 km.

Any ideas appreciated, many thanks
