Funny rattle noise from top left of engine?!


My fantastic car had decided to be Alfaish!

When the cars cold on start up it makes a rattle like "loose nut in the metalwork somewhere kinda noise"?

It's not the variator as that is a different type of noise. My indie has confirmed this! In true fashion my car would not make the noise at the garage!

A guess from the engineer was that it could be the alternator...

The car rubs just fine but the noise gets bad sometimes and is annoying!

Any ideas?

A rattle is usually the variator it can rattle at different revs and speeds aside from the usual start up diesel sounds.A noisy alternator tends to whine or wurr not rattle.
