    Have you tried the black engine cover? Could be loose bolts if its the 120 CDTI or worn rubbers on either?? Just a thought, hope its soemthing cheap and simple. HTH.

    Interesting. My mate has the astra 1.9cdti and he has this rattle we couldn't find the source of. The car has been stripped by VX and also had bits changed. VX basically fobbed him off in the end saying it was just a characteristic of these engines. Mine doesnt do it.! He had parts fitted from another car, noise went away. Parts put back on and no rattle then it started a while after. It's intermittent now but car is off on a transporter for a while to be looked at down south. I'd love to find out what it was. The noise started after it came back from a service and sounds like a loose idler pulley rattling on the offside engine side, from under wheel arch is more obvious. Worse when warm!!

    None of the usual suspects which I could think of. I could only imagine it was a bearing or pulley related thing as nothing was loose where we checked. VX specialist has now said nothing wrong with it. My mate is wanting to return the car. Car goes well apart from the noise.!!!
