Engine rattle

I have quite a distinct rattle coming from my engine. The noise matches the vibration of the engine itself and seems to be coming from under the red engine cover. Could it be a loose panel or something like that? I've had the rattle for a while and doesn't effect power or anything like that. It's just annoying!

Has anybody come across this or have any tips?

On the overrun, I'm getting an odd rattle as well. I think a good place to start would be that red panel you mentioned - on mine it is loose in the engine cover! I'm going to take it off this morning and put some double sided foam tape between the silver engine cover and that red trim panel.

Mine's a 1.9JTDm and it's the most untidy engine bay I've ever seen, so there could be a hundred different sources of a little rattle noise, but I thought I'd start with anything loose that rattles when hit with the hand.
