Sorry if this has been covered before, I did a search but could only find noise related to pulley bearings, alternator etc.

 

I bought my 2011 Mk4 about 7 weeks ago after upgrading from my Mk3 petrol. I've never had or even driven a diesel before, or had a turbo.

So at first I thought this noise was normal, some system doing it's thing or something but now, I'm not so sure as I can't find anything about it other than one video in which a guy discusses the pressure convertor.

 

I find there's a lack of coverage for this engine as most everything I check is the 2.0L engine as it's the most popular. The Haynes manual is complete garbage, I wasted my money on this as it doesn't even cover this engine...such a shame as it's always the first thing I buy for a new car.

 

So, can anyone shed any light on this noise for me.

Thanks in advance, Mart.

ermm, 3 days, not a single view ?

 

Ok, could anyone just confirm that they don't hear this noise from their diesel engine ?

 

I'm just trying to find out if this is normal as it sounds so deliberate and not like a fault.

 

 

EDIT:-So after replying to myself, I suddenly see the view count go to 66, so may be my cookies need deleting lol.

Glad you asked this question because it's revealed something I didn't know.

 

I can't tell whether it's there against the noise of a running diesel engine but I can now confirm, it's even there when I lock the car.

I recently had to bypass the 'bonnet open' switch after it kept triggering the alarm, so I can dealock the car with the bonnet open and I couldn't believe that I can still hear the relay click followed by the noise even when deadlocked.

No wonder I kept getting a low battery warning. What on earth is this noise ??

By the way, I have linked the video in my first post, is there a way to embed it as I couldn't find that option ?
