Hi guys hope your all well,

My 03 Astra Sri Dti 2.0 16v has developed a engine rattle

It seems to be more on tickover, ive noticed a loose manifold heat shield! hoping thats im not that luck am i!??!....



Also slight front end knocking, i think this is the Suspension top mounts as i've changed the....

Front springs,
Lower arms,
Anti roll bar bushes, (powerflex ones)
track rod ends,
link stabiliser bars
front engine mount insert is powerflex too

(£50 for the powerflex parts)

Thanks for your time :)

So long as it got oil & water, just wait and see if anything develops. Meanwhile make sure everything is tight, such as that heat shield. Noise travels through the chassis so it could be a loose exhaust hanger rattling aganst the chassis, or anything like that. Cant really guess too much without hearing it.
