    DTI doesn't have a timing belt, so you're safe there

    just check the aux belt tensioner and crank pully have a look with the car running to see if everything is running smooth
    mine has been clattery for 35,000 mile and i still hvaent got to the bottom of it
    also the dti has a timing chain that could give bother but not very common

    Hi,
    Did the OP get to the bottom of their problems? I am experiencing exactly the same, the more I read, the more I suspect timing chain....I couldn't see how the aux belt could make the noise I'm hearing....

    think my DMF might have a slight rattle , only hear it when the clutch is fully pressed though , which I find very strange as most rattle more when clutch is released .
    not worried about it either way as not very loud & the car drives spot on .
