    Ticking Noise

    Hi

    I have an S3 which has developed a ticking noise which is heard most prominently at, erm, tickover.

    Speeds up and slows down with the engine revs.

    Anyone know what this would be?

    lift the bonnet and have a listen around the offside near the front, between the screenwash bottle and the engine coolant bottle.

    remove the offside plastic cover (one phillips screw at the rear i think) and nestled between screenwash, coolant and power steering fluid bottles is a black box with a wiring connector on top. when i checked mine i could feel it clicking as well as hear it.

    If that is where the noise is it is most likely from the charcoal filter, apparently a little solenoid there. I had it into see the audi mechanic when i heard it, turns out it wasn't a fault. you basically just have to live with it.
