Could you not get a long screwdriver to pike around and try and dislodge it.

Sent from my C5303 using Ford OC mobile app

it's all torx screwed on and quite central, I wouldn't get enough reach without it being up on a lift.

whats the chances theres a small stone in the heatshield!

You could be right. I'd have to take the whole !Removed! thing off though to get at it.

Well I think I've found the problem. Had the car jacked up ready to get the front wheel off, opened rear door to get something and after closing it I heard the rattle. Turns out it the exhaust heat shield that's rattling about. Its not really that loose but even tapping it makes an awful sound. So I think I'll leave it in to the mech beside work to see what he can do.

Ok thanks, I'll get the wheel off and see what I can find. Hopefully it's just something simple. From reading around lots of people seem to get this specific rattle on mk2 focus with no luck in getting it fixed.

I had a quick look under the car at the exhaust shielding but that seems more central whereas the rattle sounds like it's coming from more to the left of the car. I'll Jack up the car today and see what's going on.
