New Karoq TSI rattle sound!

Post by linko85 » Tue Jan 07, 2020 8:28 pm

Hello friends!

I recently bought a Skoda Karoq 1.5 TSI and have this annoying and weird rattle inside the cabin when the engine is idle. It usually starts after 2-3 minutes after the engine is working.

Informed the dealer of course and he suggested to wait 1000-2000km as the car is still new. Now have 1.5k and the noise is still present.

- I don’t seem to hear it coming from the engine while listening carefully with the hood open.
- I saw online that people had similar noise / issues with the transmission (manual) and the noise disappears when the clutch is pressed. Mine is still there.
- It doesn’t stop once the engine gets fully heated (90C) and even after a normal drive (20min).

Here is a video of the sound (please use headphones if possible) and you can noise doesn’t start immediately and I also at the end increase the revs briefly to show that it goes away than reappears when idle:



Did somebody encounter this problem? Is it normal for a TSI engine?

Thanks in advance!

Ps. Sorry for my bad English, I’m not a native speaker.

Hello Linko.
I don't know why the dealer told you to wait. A rattle does not usually go away!
I couldn't hear anything abnormal on your video.
Is it louder under the bonnet? or in the footwell?
Is yours manual or DSG?

Sorry I must learn to read !!!!
I see it is manual.
Does it go away when in gear, clutch in or out?
It might be the DMF (dual mass flywheel) But that should last many thousands of miles.
I would take any rubbish from your dealer, take it in and get them to investigate.
Where are you? I could not see the number plate on the car in front.
By the way, Your English is faultless!!
