Hi Dave

Unfortunately audi can't see me until November so I'm kinda stuck until then. I called VAG techniq based in Dudley who are famous for fixing these kind of problems on this engine and they said it likely sounds like bottom end issues which is engine out / potential rebuild job. (Assuming it isn't just a dodgy tensioner) probably 3-7k job. Will keep you all posted

Difficult to say what it is, but would like to rule out the crank pulley as this would give a 'bottom end' knock/rattle.

39K and good service history seems unlikely it is an engine mechanical fault.

Where do you think the noise is coming from when you listen to it?
