JCW Start up rattle.. (video)

Hi,

I have searched on here high and low to find a thread that describes my rattle but unfortunately haven't been able to find one! The rattle happens on start up (cold), only lasts a short time and it doesn't seem to be effected by any change in the revs?

I have taken a clip of the sound which you can hear a couple of seconds after start up. I have read a great deal about the 'death rattle' and rattling heat shields but not to sure which if any mine is.

The car is a 2009(59) JCW on 42K.


Thanks in advance for any advice.

Tom.

Sounds like it is only for the first few seconds when you start her up
Is this when the weather is cold also, or worse when the weather is cold ?

Yeah only when it's cold and only for the first few seconds which make me think it's something that expands in the heat?

For example when I started it this afternoon (24degrees outside) no rattle.

That will be the start of the timing chain death rattle. Try starting that car from overnight and moving it just a few feet, leave for an hour then start again, if it rattles then its the chain. Only cure is the full fix, Tensioner, chain and sprocket guide. All the R56's suffered from the rattle prior to Sept 2010. Inc the JCW.
