    is it a 1.6 16valve engine?
    if so look at the timing belt idlers as the lower idler can fall apart and cause issues

    sounds and looks like the good old lower tensioner let go of plastic roller
    this is so common you are lucky to catch it before letting go and bending valves
    my freinds one let go at 3.5 yrs 22000mls VW wouldnt even contribute to the repair they said it wasnt a common fault

    i would say yes as you will get valve overlap and back pressure in the inlet manifold
