Hello. Has anyone got an idea what a clicking noise could be coming from the engine after coming off the accelerator and then reapplying acceleration which sounds quite loud though the van drives well. Could it be something to do with the potentiometer thingy?? Any ideas?

To do with the brakes then
yeh its the assistance (without it your brakes would be like they are with the engine off), im having mine replaced tomoro, has been tapping for about 1500miles, was told by VW if its not sorted in can damage the cam shaft (not sure if thats true), but anyway i got a guy near me doing it who spealises in VW, for £275, £55 cheaper then the nxt best quote i had!! oh and i had a lot of quotes!!
