Hmm that doesn’t sound good especially at the end of the video. My advice, bring it to VW main dealer to diagnose and get them to look at your light sensor while your at it !  :cool:
That chirping though does sound like the timing chain tensioner to me. I know you posted the faults previously, but could you post the actual fault codes if you have them ?

I know it’s not dealer tool but it’s the only thing I could get hold of.
