    My crummy dealership service tells me the valves need to be shimmed.
    Watched a vid or 2, they show they are adjustable.
    And, @ .1mm, .004".. correct? NOT .010"-.015" like one person mentioned.

    Being a bit of a P---K myself, I'd take a picture of the rocker cover off and ask the idiot exactly where the shims go. And they wonder why we don't go back for service.
    .1mm intake, .15mm exhaust.

    I did tell his boss about that, also, that I don't need that place, and I won't be back.
    I just need the Specs., thank you for that.
    I watched that video, pretty simple to do.
