2.0 TSI GTI Mk6 Chain Noise

Post by Herschel » Thu Dec 14, 2017 9:18 am

I have a 2011 Mk6 GTI. I replaced the cam chain & tensioner a few months ago,but i still hear like a chain noise rattling when taking my foot off the petrol.
is the oil pump chain & intermediate chain & guides prone to give issues?

Are you sure you aren't hearing the actuator rattle. This is fixed with a turbo clip from vw.

You will hear like a tick tick noise as the revs come down till about 2000k

Sound like a chain to me.If i drive close to a car or wall & take my foot off the petrol,it's quite audible.

I get exactly the same. Bought a 2012 G6GTI. Has always been doing this. I thought it was normal....
Good to hear i am not the only one. Is it something to be worried about?

Mine has the same sound. Someone once mentioned that you need to replace the guides for the chain to get rid of the sound.

I take it you didn't replace the guides when you had the chain and tensioner replaced?
