its rattling

Hiya all,
had my belts, tensioners and waterpump changed on my 156 2.0TS SW last week and ever since have been experiencing a rattle from the engine compartment. I know this subject is threaded to death and I've been through all of them but there appear to be so many symptomatic differences that I wondered if I might ask afresh, based on what I am seeing.
1. Sometimes it isn't there.
2. When it is, its quite loud, high in pitch and does not feel like it coming from within the engine but sounds like it is emanating from somewhere quite high in the compartment
3. it only rattles in gear and when the throttle is engaged; it is most noticeable with light pressure on the throttle
4. it doesnt appear to affect engine performance
5. its bloody irritating
Thank you all, in anticipation! lol

Re: its rattling

my advice would be, if you are not happy, to take it back to the garage who undertook the work, sooner, rather than later...

Re: its rattling

Sounds like it could be part of the (tinfoil)exhaust heat shielding around the top of the exhaust tapping away on the manifold or just below.

But it's probably better to just take it back.
