Re: 156 strange rattle on start up
I know its not the variator. Had that changed with my cambelt and that sounded differently before it was changed.
Could be an exhaust bracket or heat shield but I would have expected the rattle not just to be on start up, thats why I thought it may be to do with the starter motor.
Anyone know anything about the solonoid mech. I couldn't start the car about 6 months ago and had to get the AA out. They said it was a sticking solonoid, but it has never done it since. Now the rattle has started, but on start up only.
