Hiya guys new to the forum, basically i own a glanza v which is currently in process of being forged so brought a 2009 1.25 fiesta to run around in for work ect., over the last few weeks i have been getting a few rattling sounds from the engine bay which happens over rough ground and any bump now matter how small, its getting rather annoying as you could probably guess, ive checked the droplinks, springs and sorted the rattling water reservoir, bonnet and air filter, but im still getting rattling noises and im lost as to what it could be, sorry for the massive paragraph and thanks in advance for any help

It doesnt sound like it, just took it for a drive again and it sounds like something heavy thats rattling now that i have got rid of the rest of the noises, but cant see anything that it could be

Right ive just taken her out for a drive and all the little rattles are sorted but the big rattle persists, im swayed to it being the suspension or bottom arms, just uploading a video will throw the link up in a minute

Right update, it doesnt rattle under braking so its got to be the pads as they were fitted just before i got the car so its going back to the garage for them to sort it out :)

Ooh, could be something like the pad retaining spring not re-fitted properly, or something like that? I did this on a previous car - Didn't notice the rattling straight away, so took me a little while to figure out what the problem was! Doh!
