    Default loud metallic rattling starting 2500-3000 rpm

    I have a 2.0 dti 52 vectra y20dth which has a loud rattling sound when revving it above 2500-3000rpm. It sounds like a very metallic rattling similar to the sound a loose heat plate would make but very loud and constant through all the gears above 2500rpm.
    I have had a look about and cant see any loose heat plates but it sounds as if it's coming from the engine anyway.
    I have noticed the belt/pulley that is visible from the drivers side wheel is quite slack, could this cause the rattle or is it more likely to be something else?

    Cheers,
    Drew

    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Try an feel for any loose pulleys. Although I would say loose pulley/ belt would be abvious regardless of engine speed.

    Is it defiantly a rattle noise. Could you maybe take a video may help someone give you advise?

    I'll check the pulley's for any sort of play tomorrow thanks.

    It's not the heat shield I've replaced that and it's the same without it on, the other one was all bent and distorted for some reason so i just got one from the scrappy.

    I've uploaded a video but it's not really a very good example, I'll try getting a better one tomorrow.
