There is a wery anoying rattle from somewere in the rear end of the car every time i go ower a bump. Is this a common problem with the 146 or not. The thing that really bugs me is that i cant find where it comes from!!!

Look for the obvious first: check for loose items, like toolkit, spare wheel, the bottles you left in the trunk last weekend, etc.. Then you can go on to more tech stuff, like springs, shock'n all!

This probably doesn't help just thought you deserved some kind of reaction!

Do you know if your rear shocks have been replaced ? sometimes the bolt that keeps the top of the shock drops from the magnetic tool and disappeares in the chassis. Almost impossible to get out. This happens when people use the K...fitters of this world who do not understand Italian t rickery !!!

Don't know but it sounds like the sound is comming from the interior roof in the rear. Tried to strip everything from the car to se if there was a difference but there wasnt.
Could just tur the stereo up maybe.
