well the car hasn't moved for a 18 months and to be fair gets left in the garage for long periods so sounds very likely,

is it a clam off job to change?

Had a Corolla with the same engine that had done 120k miles. No noise on start up. Or ever to be fair. Checked and changed the tapered cam bolts to be sure and they were OK.

I'd buy it back if I wasn't doing so many miles a month!

Agree there are many Celicas around with big miles on them, generally a very good reliable engine platform
