    That'll probably be the dual mass flywheel if it changes with clutch pedal.

    Or maybe it was changed for a single mass by the previous owner?

    I've just bought a second hand scirocco r myself and am having a similar issue of a rattle noise that stops when I push the clutch in.

    Hey mate, mine is a dsg and I did some research on the net and found that the hpfp cam follower adds to the noise. Got that replaced and it did quite the noise but it's still there. Apparently, that's normal for these engines.

    Theyíre definitely not a quiet engine but as above recommend replacing the fuel pump cam follower as preventative measure.

    The engine in the Rocco R has a timing belt, but on the other side of the engine, the 2x camshafts are joined by a chain and tensioner, so its possible something isn't right there.

    If the car has a few km's under its belt (say 60k or more) it might be a good idea to change the cam follower on the HPFP which is about a $80 part (its a wear item, so its designed to wear out over time). If you are somewhat handy this is a DIY job. Cam follower - 06D109309C Ė V-tech Australia | Engineered Performance

    Ha
    Still havenít found a workshop that will do the HIGJ Pressure Fuel Pump cam follower for less than $500

    But I did discover my bonnet strut pivot end has lost its rubber grommet and rattles !

    Anyone else got a pic of what the bonnet strut pivot Gromet should look like ?

    Its a 20 minute job. Just do it yourself - its pretty basic.

    Yes I see a few posts saying easy.

    As I understand it you remove the lines and the pump and replace the follower. Seems straight forward.

    Of course that means a gasket and making sure the fuel lines are depressurised and then bled free of air.

    What could possibly go wrong with a HIGH pressure fuel pump ?

    DOES ANY ONE HAVE Actual experience with this. Iíd love to know what to buy ahead of doing it. I really donít want to get stuck with a leaky gasket.

    I already learnt that just ignoring the little o ring on the dipstick has dire consequences.

    TIA

    Follow the first 12 steps in the DIY I did a few years back. I never changed the o ring as my car only had about 10,000km on it at the time, but it would probably be a good idea to replace the o ring now that these cars are getting older. Autotech HPFP Upgrade full DIY guide with pics
