    rattling chain ?

    hello chaps hoping you can advise me.i have an s3 and have noticed that the car has developed a rattle in first gear after the car has warmed up. i know i have hydraulic tappets and a hydraulic cam timing variator and i know they sound noisy when you fist start the car up.i had a cambelt change about six months ago and im wondering if this may have something to do with it.do you think the chain could have gone slack and i should have cause for concern ?

    I had a similar problem a few months back, turned out to be the camshaft adjuster unit (part # 058 109 088E) got the rattle in most gears and also in nuetral when hitting about 2000 RPM. The way the garage found out it was that was they disconected the power and the rattle went.
