Default tappet trouble

hi guys, bought a 308 from a local independent dealer and 3 month in too a 6 month warrentee it has started to make a horrible noise when u start it up and when you turn it off,
been told by place we bought it that it was the tappet starving the oil of engine and it would be repaired under the warrentee ,

thing is, would it have done any damage in the mean time,they say no and it is fine to drive but after letting the main dealer have a listen they say it could have done damage and it shouldn't have been driven,
just dont want to find out in 20,000 miles that it has done any harm to the engine and it will be a massive job to do then!
cheers
paul

Have you got the 1.6 Peugeot/BMW Prince petrol engine ?? If so it may just be the timing chain tensioners or guides need attention .

When I had my morning rattle /depolution warning , it was all cured , under used warranty by attention to the timing chain guides .
