    Default Loose rattling noise

    Hi guys hope someone can help.

    My 2004 siggy 2.0T has developed a loose rattle that seems to be coming from the front of the car, if i try to explain :
    When i pull away from a junction/stand still in 1st everything is ok, then if i change to 2nd in the manner of an old man driving i get this horrible loose rattling noise for a breif couple of seconds as the car accelerates....then it dissapears, but if i pull away again in 1st and give it a bit - then change to 2nd it doesnt do it ?? ..... sometime from 2nd to 3rd if i drive like an old man but if i nail it then its fine ?

    This really is doing my head as i dont know what to try 1st other than nail it everywhere and get about 17mpg lol.

    The noise sounds like a loose heatshield would sound if you can imagine that ..... ive checked under the bonnet and cant see/feel anything loose.

    Perhaps it could be exhaust related ? something rattling in the exhaust ?

    Could it be anything to do with the timing chain and tensioners ? but wouldnt that be in every gear as you accelerate ?

    Dont think its anything to do with the gearbox as ive applied the handbrake and let the clutch out to biting point as its about to stall and no noise in any gear.

    So please folks if anyone has had or is having a prob like this and can help me then it would be gratefully appreciated ..... gotta be worth a drink or two.

    Thanks in advance,

    Rich

    I think I get this noise too. Is it like when you slow down in second gear, you don't think your really slow enough for first and the revs drop too low (under 1500) and when you pull away again it rattles?
    Or is that just me not driving properly?

    Don,t know if this is the problem you are having but i had a frontera 2003 reg everytime i set of it had a tinny rattle i thought it was the heatshield, i checked everything from the metal dust covers on the wheels to taking the heatshield of and driving like that all to no avail it drove me nuts, after a couple of weeks investigating (when i had the time ) i finally tracked it down to the cat coverter it was in the front downpipe of the exhaust, new downpipe fitted £300 and all was perfect.

    Mine does it too, we live on top of a hill, and coming up in second it will labour, then rattle, then drive normally. It sounds like a heatshield to me as well.

    That sounds familiar mate ..... ive noticed it mainly when i come to a junction....look right to see if its clear and if so just carry on in 2nd as you would and ..........Loose rattle starts.

    Seems a few are having similar effects.......... have i started a good thread / topic here, does someone know of a fix as to what it can be ? Im so glad its not just me so come on guys surely we can sort this out between us

    Thats what I'm on about. Labour was the word I couldn't think of to describe what the engine does when it rattles!
    I thought it was an exhausty type noise.
    Can we fix it

    Definately a good topic mate, I hope we can get to the bottom of it, cause it is rather irritating.
    I'm sure my motor never used to do it!

    Mine does it too, accelerate normally, then back off and theres often, but not always, a rattle from the engine end of things that sounds like a loose piece of metal. I begining to think it was the dual mass flywheel?

    I think the DMF is more of a vibration throught the clutch/gearbox but im sure a more experienced person (Gsi3.2 or Duncan) will advise.
