2013 T3 3.0tdi V6 engine ticking

My car has developed a ticking noise at idle speed and the vibration can be felt through the whole car! No lights on the dash to declare a fault and other than that car is running fine.
I put through some fuel cleaner/additive but no joy.
Any similar issues?
Thanks

I will bet you have blown copper injector seals.

Look for the black tar like substance on either side of the engine against the wheel arches and on the exhaust manifolds.
