I'm getting a tapping noise when accelerating or on increased revs, it's noticeable whilst driving but being a noisy diesel it's hard to distinguish the source of the noise when looking under the bonnet.
I'm assuming it's the tappets/lifters. How much can I get replacement tappets for? Is there likely to be another issue? Just done oil and filter change. I recently fitted a Synergy 4 so my foot has been a little heavy recently.

Tappets virtually never give issues unless the cambelt has broken where they commonly destroy themselves.

Video the noise perhaps?

It's difficult to video, I'll try but not sure if you'd be able to hear it on a video recording, although it does seem to be getting progressively worse.

It's still drive-able without issues so I doubt it's the cambelt. Would I get this noise from worn injector seals?

Changed injector seals and still no difference so I'll take a look at the cam belt
