Hey
We brought a 2013 vw crafter unseen(thanks covid) which has what I believe is lifter issues (tap tap tap not vacuum pump)

Wondering if anyone has repaired or more importantly if you can take head etc off on these without removing the engine?

Yes these do suffer from tappet failure but it is a pretty straightforward job and the tappets themselves are the same ones VAG have used in various engines since 1984, we would use the cam, lifters, belt, water pump etc from Febi but there is a lot of aftermarket choice.

awesome thanks for that. Any idea where to find a manual with the torques etc?
