<strong>Depending on what constitutes a "rattle" I've got exactly the same problem with my 147. Everything seems secure enough but there's a definite soft knocking noise at lower speeds over uneven surfaces. It isn't the exhaust, it isn't the rear parcel shelf, it isn't the tools or spare wheel (because I carry a can of tyre repair foam instead), it isn't any of the trims, and I don't think it's the removable panel that covers the spare wheel well - although I'm still experimenting on this bit.
It's relatively trivial but squeaks and rattles from any car annoy the hell out of me and I've spent a year chasing them out my 147 - this one is the last survivor. I may have to resort to being driven round in the boot with my ear to the floor: obsessive, uncomfortable, yes - but easier than taking it to Alfa.</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">If I have to live with it so be it !
I sure when I get my bella lowered I will have more rattles to come.
Its all part of the fun owning an Alfa, You never know what going to happen next !
