Hi all,

I'm very taken with a Clio Trophy I've seen online. The dealership have been kind enough to send me a video and the car looks great but I'm concerned about the ticking noise. Would really appreciate if some owners could could check out the video and let me know if it's normal?


Many thanks!

Mine is a bit quieter, but only has 26000km and is a phase 2.

Don't know the mileage on that one.

It can be the timing chain tensioners that are a bit worn, making that rattle noise...

Hard to say on a video though.

direct injection petrol engines can sound a bit rattly/harsh when cold
