    I picked up a new MY13 GTI a few weeks ago, and sure enough it has the rattle. Going to let the dealer know about it when it goes in for its check up in a couple of months.

    Minke I'm sure Urs probably has it too.

    ^ if you drive with the window down at about 2,000rpm you can hear it rattle. So thats a good test for you. Obviously doing it at low speed to minimise wind noise.

    Had my 15k service yesterday and I quoted the TSB and part numbers found elsewher on the site, asked if they could have a look at it for me. i was not expecting to be told they have ordered the clip and can I book the car in to have it fitted, well done Garry Crick Maroochydore. No questions, no denial by the service manager, just a great result I didn't expect so easily.

    118tsi having rattle

    I am not sure if I am posting in the right thread. My 118 tsi has been having this rattling sound coming from the engine area (passenger side), which mostly occurs at speeds between 20 & 30 kmph. It resembles the sound that a loose nut in a tin can makes, when shaken. I have been complaining to Burwin about the problem, but they weren't able to reproduce it. Took my car for the 50k service and I was able to reproduce the sound when I went for a drive with their foreman.

    They acknowledged the sound, but weren't able to localise it. Instead, they suggested to go through the engine assembly in detail if the sound increases or my engine stalls!!

    The DSG shudder was rectified during 40k service, when they changed the clutch assembly. I love the car, except for this rattle. Is it similar to the issue in GTI?

    I believe the wastegate rattle was specific to the GTI engines, although the sound you describe is very similar. Might be worth a look..

    Thank you. When I mentioned the rattle to a Burwin technician, the first thing he asked me was, "do u have a GTI?". Probably, mine is a odd one out and I guess I could recommend the same clip to them?

    Contrary to what I said above I believe it does affect other TSI engines, although I understood they were all from the EA888 family, whereas the 118TSI is an EA211 engine.. so unsure whether its the same issue or not (or whether I am 100% correct in this).

    The wastegate rattle was rpm dependent, if yours is speed dependent I would still think it is something else?

    Unfortunately the parts are not compatible at all - the GTI and 118TSI engines are quite different in this respect. I'd be surprised if what you're describing is a wastegate rattle, to be honest - anything turbo-related (or indeed engine related) is going to be rpm and/or load dependent, not road speed dependent.

    Had my new Golf GTi in at the dealer for an unrelated matter, however interesting to note that this clip was already fitted. Dealer assumes at factory. Car delivered 14th Jan 2013.
