    Unhappy New Clutch, New Fly Wheel but rattle is still there, HELP

    Hi all, some my remember that about 4 weeks ago i posted a thread that my car rattled from the engine until you pressed the clutch down and then the rattle stopped, WELL it went to vaux and they said they reckon it was the release bearing, after and inspection by them they changed there mind and said it was the Clutch and flywheel.... 3 weeks later after waiting for parts, i get my car back with a new clutch and fly wheel.... Now don't get me wrong the gear changes are now lovely and Very smooth BUT the rattle is STILL there, Im ******* livid and have no idea why its still doing it, PLEASE HELP.......

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 150

    Year : 05

    Mileage : 74000

    Apparently Maverick posted up that the starter motor can also be affected by the deterioration of the flywheel... Is it EXACTLY the same noise as before or just a slight rattle?

    Any chance it could be the alternator? Mine went through a spell of rattling at idle in cold weather if i had the fan conrol set to 3 or above.

    If i started up with everything electronic turned off, and fan control turned off, no rattle was present
