Thank you, it’s booked in for a full service tomorrow- do you think it could be the tappets? Thought it might need an oil change. I had a mechanic have a look & they said it wasn’t worth fixing, but it still drives perfectly, with no warning lights 🤷‍♀️

It really depends on what the noise is , but with your mechanics opinion I would get them to verify what the cause is first before doing any full service .
