    Welcome to the forum Dtabster! ☺
    On a note about ticking 1.9TD engines - make sure your using the right oil in it, don't bother with the cheap stuff, use proper VW stuff (Quantum?)... 👍
    Too heavy and it ticks, even when warm - too light even more so.
    If you can see the bottom pulley wobbling around then worry! 😱😱

    Ha ha! Yep, turn up the stereo! 👍😁 Cause a conversation at cruising speed is out of the question... I know it is mine... 😁😁

    Yeah I've recently had the cambelt done by a local vw specialist so no worries about the bottom pulley although i do check it every now and again.
    It's always sounded the same since i brought it tbh and i did an oil change then but might do another soon as it's probably nearly due.

    Mine was noisy, tappety (especially with the bonnet open), quite a harsh vibration through the air-box (holding it subdued it).

    Is there not some issue when the vacuum pump causes a tapping noise?
