    Default rattling

    this is going to be hard to describe.
    i got a rattle, very prominent inside the car, its a deep plasticky rattle, not tinny or metallic.
    seems to be coming from the nearside engine compartment
    but when the bonnet is lifted the rattle cant be located from the outside.
    there is nothing obviously loose or banging under the bonnet

    more prominent while driving, first noticed it sat in traffic, was only while ticking over dropped to about 750 revs

    i was just wondering if there was a common thing with these vectra's that i could single out.

    Kinda making me wonder if you have a rattle on the heater/blowers? Try turning the blowers up above 1?
    I know it sounds daft but I hunted for weeks for a rattle in my last one and this is what it turned out to be.

    At idle i am getting a rattle coming from the engine. Yet as soon as the unlock the bonnet from the lever it goes away. When i stand outside i hear it as soon as the bonnet is shut. It may well be the rubber washer that needs replaced but the noise is annoying.

    Its not anything in your glove box is it?

    I hate rattles in any car. i get the odd couple now and again in mine, most annoying in the roof... i'm just waiting for the summer to come then the interior is coming out and then going to put everything back greased up or taped down...

    You say it goes after you release the bonnet, this could be the bonnet release cable !
    this runs from the drivers side bulk head and along under the scuttle panel to the nearside wing, if the plastic clips are broken or it has just come undone from them, it
    will just flap around ! releasing the bonnet might take the tension off it !....Maybe !
