It sounds like you might have the newer program already.
Rev up the engine and let the engine drop. If you here the ticking while the engine is dropping in rpm then you have the old program.
My car was Aug 2007 production so I assume pre-29.2. It sounds like it may be a simple fix, with the exception of getting in there with the right tools. The only oddity is my rattling goes away after it's really warmed up with the exception of a small flutter on low RPM and what sounds like valve clatter on idle.
