Ticky Beetle

This bulletin applies to 2006 and later VW Beetle vehicles. If a ticking/rattle noise can be isolated to the upper engine in the timing chain area, disconnect the line from the vacuum pump.

If the noise goes away or is greatly reduced, remove and inspect the vacuum pump. If the drive portion of the pump looks OK, replace the pump and re-test for noise.
