hi all

Just picked up a 2004 156 JTS with the sport pack 3 suspension. Totally love it. After plodding in an Auto Discovery for years - Im back to enjoying driving. Every time I get in the car it puts a smile on my face.

Have one issue with it which I'm sure will be answered in the technical pages but if anyone can point me in the right direction...
Car has 46k on the clock - Cam belt done at 38k. On startup just for a few seconds there is a slight tinny sounding rattle. Does'nt always do it. Thinking it might be a heat shield loose or possibly the bendix on the starter motor not dissengaging from the flywheel propery - any thoughts gratefully received as Im not yet familiar with the car.
