    Engine Noise

    Hi,

    I have just bough a 2015 Passat Estate 2.0 TDI SE Business and have noticed that there is a lot of engine noise from around 2000rpm that almost sounds like a blowing exhaust or something vibrating although you can't feel any vibration in the car. It isn't there below 2000 rpm only on acceleration and above 2000rpm. The noise also goes away if you lift off the accelerator. Any ideas what could be causing this or is it normal for this car?

    Thanks

    Engine noises aren't easy to diagnose on a forum unless we can hear it. Do you have a video or search YouTube for the same noise?

    The plastic engine covers can rattle around

    Thanks Crasher,

    It looks like the engine cover is a little loose does it just pull off? I assume I will need to replace the rubber mounts.

    Thanks

    Yes it pulls off, the mounts wear (07C 103 226) and the ball heads (04L 103 164 although two are part of the cam cover) can snap. I put the mounts in with a little light weight RTV if they are loose in the cover locations and sometimes I even put DynaMatt inside the cover to dampen vibrations.
