    it's probably too hard a problem to identify, it could be anything that has come slightly loose. does it only happen when you start driving? and if so, how long until it goes away?

    i know it's no consolation, but the squeaks and rattles aren't uncommon in the vecs.

    try squeezing the steering surround casing, this tends to come loose and makes an annoying rattle. bit of superglue sorts this out.

    Have you taken your car to the dealer lately? Because they sometimes leave presents in the engine bay such as tools, etc.

    this noise came on quite sudden it didnt gradually get louder, and its there all the time when driving. its like somthing is moving back & forward. imagine a plastic ball in a small length of tube getting rattled about, thats the noise

    My old astra did that, a screw had fallen out and was rolling around under the steering surround
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
