Rattle type engine noise.

My 159 2.2 JTS has developed a rattly noise. Well I say developed I noticed it very soon after I bought it over a year ago. I couldn't really work out where it was coming from with just my ear. Lately it seems to have become quite a bit worse. However using the screwdriver stethoscope trick I am pretty sure it's coming from the high pressure fuel pump. 800 ?

Has anyone else had this? Slightly concerned as I have to drive down to the south west of France in a week's time. Not sure whether to risk it or try and swap it before I go.

Well a 1200 mile round trip and all was well. It's still rattly and I can't decide if it's got worse or not. Clearly it's not critical but it annoys me as it sounds like the engine is knackered but it clearly isn't. It's going to annoy me if I can't track it down definitively 😕
