F430 Engine Clicking Noise (Video)

Good day gentlemen,

I dont really post much, but I truly am a big fan of this forum and appreciate its content. My car has been in our local dealer's workshop for 8 weeks due to a clicking noise. But until now, they haven't truly identified the problem. Thought some fellas here might be able to help identify the sound.

The dealer suspected that the hydraulic tappets were making the clicking noise, but I know that some debris (as discussed in the forums) may cause a similar sound. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Check your suspension mount. Also the noise might come from inside the car, like in the pillars / carpets etc, I had a similar experience and it turns out it a flash light that got stuck at the bottom of my seats making noises against the c/f surface. Good Luck.

Have they ruled out the exhaust headers?

Sounds like no oil in the sump,
Or bottom end hanging out
Sorry that's what I think.
I hope it isn't

thanks guys

Mike, I was actually telling the service manager just that, but he wouldn't listen. He's insisting it's the hydraulic tappets making the sound because he couldn't see a crack in the exhaust. Told him its quite hard to find because of the shield covering the pipes.

here's a picture of the headers. seems like a leak to me.
