    S3 Strange Tappnig noise??

    Hi, Asking questions sooner than i thought Anyway was out at the S3 tonight filling up the water skusher bottle as i had ran out and heard a constant tapping noise, It sounds like its coming directly below the water bottle on the drivers side or around that area.

    Anyone have any ideas what this might be and could it work out expensive??

    Thanks in advance

    Sounds like you could be talking about the charcoal canister? If so it's perfectly normal for it to tick

    Short answer - it collects fuel vapour and then then reuses it by circulating it back into the engine.

    It's an emissions thing. Yet another stupid idea to help save the trees...
