Default 2006 2.0T - loud tapping noise (video link inside) warranty help

2006 A3 2.0T loud engine tapping.

I know there are more 2.0T owners browsing this forum than the A3 forum so I decided to post a link here.

Thanks for you help!

Joe, your car sounds normal...this is how the 2.0T FSI sounds, a little like a diesel at idle. Mine sounded very similar when I bought it new, but now after 55K it sounds a lot quieter...if you don't have a check engine light and the car is pulling well don't be too alarmed.

Just my 2 cents...

Cheers, Nick

Hey Joe

That sounds normal. It's the direct injection that gives the fsi that sound. On my A4 the car did not have the belly pan and the battery cover when I got it. Once I added that the car became a lot quiter. The pan is actually called a "sound baffel" so I guess that's what they are supposed to do. lol Just figured I would mention it. I bet this holds tru on the A3 also.

Cheers

Massboykie and Nick,
I'm glad the noise is normal. It's shocking because it is quite loud.

Thanks for the information!

Hey Joe

Yeah it took a bit of getting used to it for me to.

I would seriously check your belly pans. You will be surprised how much that helps if you don't have them. Worth the $200.

Cheres
