  • tapping noise on idle

    Hi everyone. When I'm sat in car I can hear a tapping noise from the engine when the car is idling. When I rev the noise goes until settles back to idle. Can't hear it when I stick my head in the engine bay. Wonder what it could be..

        No mate if anything can hear it slightly louder when it's walmed up, u have to really listen for it though. Maybe it's just me trying to hear something haha

            If the tapping sounds like it's coming from behind the driver door hinge (from inside) or behind the right hand side repeater (when outside), then it's the charcoal canister valve clicking and nothing to worry about.
