    Awful inconsistent rattle, can't seem to pin point where it's coming from

    Hi, ( video for sound) I have this inconsistent metallic rattle that seems to be coming from behind the gauges ( LHD car). I can hear it very clearly on the inside and I noticed it's almost always there when the engine is at 2k rpm. I had someone rev it to 2k at a stop and I could also hear it...

    Steering wheel rattle

    Hi, I've noticed a rattle coming from inside the steering wheel / steering column / or being the gauges. It only happens when the wheel is slightly turned to the right or on very rough roads.

    Strange gearbox whine/ buzzing.

    Hi all. Recently bought a 182 and am loving it, although, I have a slight issue regarding a ticking/ buzzing noise that sounds as if its coming from the front left area in the engine bay. It sounds almost as if someone has twanged a ruler on the edge of a table and increases with RPM of the...

    Hi all, As in the title I'm getting a strange metallic sounding tapping noise from the offside of the engine. I've not heard a noise like it before so don't know what to look for, so I was hoping someone might have an idea! Video shows the noise, it isn't as audible on the near-side of the...

    In your opinion what’s this noise??

    Hi all I’ve had a 182 offered to me with this engine noise... What do you think it will be? It could be a perfect car to run alongside the 172 track car! So I’m rather interested in knowing what it might be. Apparently it’s had a recent service and started making this noise after the...

    Idle Rattle

    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? Many...

    Very Loud Rattle when revving With video.

    Hi all just drove back from work and while reversing out of a space it let out a very loud rattle, while driving I dipped the clutch and the noise stopped, revved it sharply and it rattles again, slowly revving in neutral and no rattle, but rev a little harder and it rattles like crazy.
