Manage to pinpoint the rattle coming from clutch this evening, it's definitely the clutch.
Took the car out for about a 20 minute drive, the rattle has now disappeared but my guess is it will return when it cools down. Does this sound like a typical clutch problem?
I read this earlier,
2004 Clio 182
The car has developed a rattle on idle, it happens when the car has reached temperature. At first I thought it was the exhaust heat shield. I discovered yesterday that if I engage the clutch the rattle disappears. Could it be the clutch release bearing? Or a worn mount?
Ran out of patience waiting for the injectors to be delivered and had this afternoon off work, so I picked up a single injector from EuroCarParts and fitted it. Lumpy idle is now gone, power delivery and pick up have all improved!! Totally different car now.
I've still got a set of 4 injectors...
Brilliant!! Sounds like I'm on the right track, just need to wait now for the new injectors to arrive.
Yeah I'm currently using Carista diagnostic app on my iPhone, it does the job but as you say it wouldn't be as accurate as other readers.
