When i start the car there is a rattling sound but it goes away instantly once all the lights go off., there is a definite change in engine tone and im worried about the timing chain.

car is a 2012 clubman D 1.6 with 131k on the clock, full service history and due one now.

if anyone can watch the video and listen and confirm etc i would be greatful

also if anyone know what the cost is.... or perhaps its just a tensioner? i dont know i never have much luck with cars :( i bought this one and it was quiet, obviously they must have started it briefly before i viewed it, as otherwise its quiet on the second restart.

heres the link to YouTube

it only makes the noise if cold and stood for over 12 hours or so
