    Anyone knows what is this ticking sound? It just happened recently. It’s a 2012 RS200 III with 44,000 KM.

    Please watch the video.

    Yes it’s a sign to switch it off and stop running it, could be the variator pulley or something loose on the cambelt side of things, either way I’d be getting it recovered to a garage and getting it looked at ASAP and not running it!

    Damn.
    The car was not used for the last 3 months, I just started it last night and noticed this noise.

    I’d guess at the water pump

    My old 182 sounded very similar, the water pump was very squeaky, still used it for a few weeks though. I’d get it sorted sooner rather than later
