Hi. I have just purchased a Tiguan R Line 2.0tdi 4 motion DSG today. Love the car but there is an issue (i think). Theres a knocking sound i can hear when stationary. Not the usual diesel engine noise but something in the background.
Please see video below.
After i finished recording i put the car in drive the noise Vanished. Soon as i put it in ‘N’ or ‘P’ it comes back. DSG
Ive asked the seller to sort the issue out (pay for repairs) or it will be getting returned.
what you guys think it can be?
Thanks

Could be a number of things. Sounds kinda like a stuck injector, could be a flywheel issue, timing belt, lots of things. Get the hood open and see if you can isolate the sound to an area. Use a long hunk of dowel as a stethoscope. Put it near an injector then the other end to your ear.

We can only guess what the noise is and waste time. If anything get it by a local mechanic and ask them.

One noise sounds like something lose, another noise sounds a bit like rod knock. As Iggy said take it to a garage you choose, not the seller.

It sounds like a gearbox issue.
If it were my car the only place I would be driving it would be to the garage to get fixed because if something goes completely the gearbox could be destroyed.
Is the garage a franchised dealer or a general dealer?
What warranty did you get with it?
Also remember now you have notified the garage it would be best to get it sorted asap.
What year is the car and the mileage?

Great as the Tig is, it's a highly complex machine that needs the attention of specialised skills.

Expert analysis of the problem will save you money and time in the long run.
