    My T27 2,0 D4D had same problem... Terrible rattling noise when idling. When I pushed the pedal a little bit, no noise. First I thought that the timing chain has gone bad, but then I listened carefully with rubber hose and noticed that the noise is coming from a/c compressor pulley. When rotating the pulley by hand it came out that there were too much clearance between pulley and that metal plate which is bolted to compressor shaft. Inside the pulley are some rubber dampers and they must have gone bad... I searched this forum for help and found this topic. I watched the video above and had an idea! I extruded some elastic sealant inside the pulley through the metal plate holes (12) and after 24 hrs drying no clearance, no noise. This is temporarily repair, but interesting to see how long it lasts... Hope this will help others with pulley problems...

  6. Hello everybody! My problem is integrated headlights washer. Is there any possibility to make it work by separate button? My old T25 had that button... edit: the bulbs are halogen..
