A3 1.8 SE engine rattle
I have got an A3 1.8 SE which developed a rattle that has got worse over a
period of time. The rattle starts when I begin to accelerate, after 1500 revs it
I was told it was the Cam Belt whiplashing and it needed changing - I have
since had the Cam Belt, water pump and the bearing changed and the noise is still the
I did not have the tensioner which is seperate to the tensioner bearing changed because I
was told it was ok.
Any ideas as to what the problem might be will be appreciated.

Should always change the cam belt tensioner while changing the cam belt - Its not essential but why NOT bother seeing everything is being done in that area.
