Interesting, I had the same thing and they blamed it on the turbo eventually.

I could easily reproduce it by putting the engine slightly under load, like reversing up a steepish hill slowly (!). I know that sounds silly but I like to give an absolute test case for mechanics, otherwise you get BS that there is no noise.

I'll mention the oil cooler for a check next time it's in ...
