    Hi everyone,
    I have two rattles on my 2.2D manual. The first is a diesel rattle, worst at start up....and the second is a pinking rattle, especially when accelerating, loaded or towing. I am still under warranty after buying secondhand a few months ago, and wonder if I should take either of these up with the dealer?

    If you're under warranty best to get it checked out. Could be coming from timing chain.

    The first rattle on start up can be simple as stone stuck on the lower wishbone if you off road or simple fix the engine cover (Acoustic cover) is lose. Look at the top cap nuts do they have their black washers if they are not there they result in chatter and cause that noise.

    Pinking whilst accelerating is tell tale sign of mis-fueling. But get your local dealer to have a look . If yo are near by to Leeds drop me a text can have a look for you.
