Purchased this 3 months ago and 1st thing to have done book into VW Colbornes to have timing belt kit, pump belt, tensioners, pulley bolt changed, seemed fine, covered less that 200 miles since this work carried out...

Starts on the key from cold, warms up nicely and drives fine, pulls like a train so must be timed correctly. However its developed a noise best described as 'tap tap tap, tap tap tap' constantly at idle and when revving upto 2500rpm? pumping brake pedal makes no difference. Is this the dreaded vacuum pump or camshaft tappet wear?

167k FSH from new, 2001/Y beautiful condition, so lucky find only paid £3750 T:
