Loud tapping noise?

Post by funky-hijet on Wed Sep 08, 2010 7:10 pm

On the way back from weymouth to cheltenham it drove fine..until i turned my music down when i got back into cheltenham there is a horrid loud tapping noise! It sounds like tappets to me but it seems far worse than tappets. Its also a simular sound to when a pushrod goes in a car. No idea what this is so suggestions would be great.

It could be the valve clearences as don't forget you are sat on top not behind and it one has backed off the nut may be bouncing aroung the rocer cover if you have a 1lt then its only 6 bolts and its off.
