Hi just joined the site and looking for some advice. I have a 2006 2.0tdi s-line and absoluty love the car. Just recenty purchased it after selling my seat leon FR TFSI due to running costs and moving further away from work.
The problem is when i start the car in the morning i am getting a squeking noise coming from the engine which i have pin pointed to the plastic tensioner on the timing belt. The noise is quite loud on initial start up and extreamly annoying it does disapear when the car is heat up and driven for a few miles but this shouldn't be doing this.
Is there a bearing in there which may be nackered and causing this noise? should i get this looked at asap? and is this a big job to replace/repair.
The car only has 320000 miles on the clock btw.
Any help appreciated
