So the engine has started making a tapping sound at idle and under 3000 rpm while driving.

It is a Cooper S 55 plate with a good service record (although inspection II is a little overdue, but not being doing many miles last couple of years) with 83k on the clock.

I think its in need of some care so looking for a recommended garage in Surrey and any advice on what the people think the noise could be.



Hopefully the link above works, the car is running at idle then revved up to 3000rpm. Sound quality not great but you can hear that tapping sound.

Thanks for the help in advance.

I think that could be the case... any idea how much it would cost to fix and if I can drive the car short term before I get it into the garage.

No idea on the price, but Station View Garage in Dorking are a club sponsor, so should give you a good rate Smile Really good service there as well Smile
