theres 2 versions of this engine early ones were chain later 06 models belt if its a chain you hear then you may have an early model chain rattle on cars ive had in the past were due to the chain tensioners needing replaced but there is a distinct rattle that some fords seem to have

Im sure these engines have both a chain and a belt.. chain from crank to fuel pump, and belt to drive cam via the fuel pump. Will double check from tje haynes manual

Is there a possibility that the heat shield is deformed or loose?
Bit of a coincidence that the noise has started after it was refitted.

Checked my prevous comments, and yes, the 1.8 is a revision on the Endura TDDI, and has a double chain driven fuel pump, and a belt driven camshaft..... Saying that, UNLESS the engine has not had regular oil and filter changes, at that mileage I would be very surprised if the chains had worn to be that slack, as the adjuster is hydraulic. More likely to be the heat shields, as stoney and artscot say. They do seem to have a habit of rusting though the bolt holes, mine did on the rear shield, as I thought this was causing my rattle, but it wasnt. Had to have the bolts pulled, and refitted.... no amount of penetrating fluid would touch them.

Always look for the simplest things first, as its usually them. On my old almera, had a rattle, that for the life of me could not trace, and it ended up being my sunglasses in the roof mounted sunglasses holder. Got no end of ribbing for that one :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
