Default S8 Manifold flaps

Just come back from a long drive and I noticed this strange noise when I accelerate, it seems to be coming from the front of the V, under/in the manifold... I'm assuming I've cought the flaps in the early stages of failure.

How long do I have until I need to take this apart, I've done this job on a previous car but before it started making noise. but I use this car daily..

Thank you in advance.

How long is a piece of string? My advice would be to stop driving the car and get it done. If you continue to drive it as a daily, you may come to regret it.

Managed to find alternative transport so I'm no longer driving the car luckily.

I took the chance to take the throttle bodies off and run a test on VCDS, the flaps appear to be completely fine, back to the investigation I guess.
