147 JTD - engine noise getting louder

I have a 147 JTD and the typical diesel tap tap tap noise that was hardly audible when new is getting louder and louder. The car has done 150,000 kms and the change in volume has been noticeable since about 100,000 kms.

Any Suggestions... Injectors?

And if it is injectors what can you do... and is it a big job?

Thanks

8v or 16v?

8v jtd have solid tappets that might need adjusting.... 16v have hydraulic tappets

1910 cc - 110kW model 147

It is the 1910cc - 110kW model 147.

I am pretty sure that is the 16 valve.

yes it's a 16v...

have the EGR system cleaned, dirt in the intake makes the diesel sound worse... also, check the hydraulic tappets for play
