It could be the hydraulic lifters and this seems to be oil related. What oil grade do you use?

Hi guys thanks for your quick answers, as I said just in hot weather. It has been like this for 2yrs, been to vw they cannot replicate the noise and couldn't narrow it down when I described it to them. I'm not entirely sure on the oil I use but it has been recently serviced. When I'm pushing down on the accelartor is makes a noise as well as if I pressed the clutch. When I press down on the clutch it enhances the tapping sound.

I would also be thinking lifters, can you tell of the noise is at engine speed or slower, an oil change with an engine flush may help.

Once the engine has warmed up it is at both engine speed and slower. It bounces off walls when I'm stationary. The further I go from this point it seems to get louder. An oil change has already been done. Again thanks for your reply.

Search YouTube for "Dual mass flywheels rattle/noise" or "DMF rattle/noise". Could be that.
