Dephaser on a phase 1 172?? FRED?

  Mk5 golf gti
Does the phase 1 172 have the same problems of rattling dephaser due to lack of oil changes??

the reason i ask this, is that i am yet to see a phase 1 with the probl;em compared to the amount of 172/182 i have seen with this problem??

anyone had dephaser problems on their phase 1?? or anyone seen one??

All the same set up on PH-1, PH-2, 172, 182 etc.

i thought as much but thought maybe the dephaser was of a different design maybe

its just ive never seen or heard of a phase 1 with dephaser rattle even though its the oldest model :S

praying mine doesn't need doing! Mine doesn't sound anything like that vid on adam172, that sounded like a dirty diesel! but the 'after' vid doesn't half sound smooth.
