    Default 1.9 CDTI (150) Strange Rattle

    Hello,

    I've got a strange rattling noise that can only be heard when the car isn't in gear and I blip the throttle without a gear selected.

    For example if I sat and blip the throttle then take my foot off as the engine slows down back to idle I can hear this strange rattle/gear grating sound (hard to describe).

    If I put my put my clutch in the same sound can't be heard at all, there's also no other sound of it when driving normally/changing gear etc..

    Anyone got any ideas or experienced this before? It does seem to be getting gradually louder as time passes.

    Flywheel?

    Cheers,
    Dunc.

    Gutted, figured it would be something down those lines, seems to be the common death of the CDTI...

    With it rattling already am I dangerously close to trouble or is it likely to run for a bit yet?

    What's the worst if it does go totally, clutch + gearbox + DMF ?

    Cheers,

    My missus' car had the DMR rattle for about 30k miles before I got it changed. It probably would have still gone on for ages...

    I think there's a member on here who's had one rattling for over 100k now

    Same happened on our car too after 125k miles. New alternator (not exchange or refurb) from Euro Car Parts for just under £200. Sold the knackered one for £50 on eBay as Spares or Repairs

    This one was a recall from Vauxhall. Old one was replaced and there was nothing wrong with it. Seen one for £90 tbh so I may plump for that and follow the how2.

    Gazza, what amp is your alternator? Ours was the 100amp one, but I put in a 120amp one on the advice of Euro Car Parts. Noticed the difference straight away - slightly brighter lights, and the starter turned quicker too.

    Don't know m8, think it is the same plus the problems started when I turned the steering wheel screen flicker and the stereo went haywire.
