Thanks a lot to all who responded to my mail. You made me feel much more
comfortable ;)

The funny thing is that the noise hasn't appeared since then, but I will
take it as a warning.
Guess I better put an oil seal and a set of tappets on '98
Audi_Spares_Budget, but I will move the issue from my Things_To_Do_ASAP
to my Things_To_Do list. I'll probably do it together with my upcomming
timebelt/waterpump change.

PS. No vacuum pump on this model.
