  1. Strange Metalic Rattle From Timing Belt Area

    Hi everyone, Yesterday night for some reason my car was driving strange, revs were jumping up and down and car was bopping on the road as if I was constantly pressing and releasing the accelerator.

  2. Laguna III (coupe) dash rattle

    My car has a rattle coming from the big grille on top of the dash. When I press it firm, it stops. I've tried prising it up a bit to jam some padding in, but it doesn't seem to want to come out easily - if I could get the whole thing out, I could put something around the rim... So how does that...

  13. Scenic 04 1.5 dCi Death Rattle?

    So, my aforementioned Scenic had actually been behaving itself for a few months when it developed a knocking sound on the way to work.
