This will be tappets check the clearence with a filler guage and haynes manual if you have neither then tighten them all up so they have slight movement but not NO movement as they will wear very quickly and break???? Let me know how u get on? if its only one it should do this in a regulary patten with a break each time (3-5 sec) if not then its something else.

clearance is 0.2mm,as I recall.If its worked loose the little cap to the springshaft may have come off,widening the gap and making even more noise/Either way,its just 3 bolts to take the rocker cover off and look

hi guys thanks for your help.unfortunatly ive done the tappets and except for no2 and no7 which only needed very slight adjustment the rest were spot on.this has not cured my problem there is no change at all,ive even slackened off the inject but this made no difference either.the noise is a constant knock knock knock with no break in it and obviously speeds up when the engine does,ive tried injector cleaner again no difference.the knock is somewhere around no1 cylinder,it sounds the same at the middle and bottom of the head and at the top of the block.its not the vac pump as thats at the back of the engine im at a loss and worrying.anything else it could be,ive heard other 300tdis whith the same noise but also others which are very quiet compared to mine.
thanks
richard

sounds mostly like diesel knock-affected by timing-is it worse cold?

Try holding onto the injector pipes. It's possible it could be a faulty injector. I would expect you to be able to feel it knocking on the injector pipe. Has the engine been overheated or run low on oil? 300tdi pistons do like to melt and cause a loud clacking sound.
