Rattle on the right side

Recommended Posts

I don't know, what causes it, but there is a slight rattle on the right side of the car which you can hear when you set off, when you brake or when you go over a slight bump.

I once tried to accelerate and pulsate on the throttle (to make the car shake) and each time the rattle appears,. My thoughts turned to the upper engine mount which looks like in the photo. Isn't that suppose to stay different because of being hydraulic. I don't think it does any sort of damping. Please share your thoughts! Any other part which i need to check out?

Thanks !

Hey Luke! Thanks for the reply

I did check it. And did not see anything unusual there.

Even when the car is standing still, and I turn off the engine, i can still hear it (as the engine shakes when it's stopping). Does anyone have a photo of that upper mount?

Searched a bit and found out that the upper engine mount has a hydraulic mechanism. Shouldn't it look like in the picture, to damp the vertical movement of the engine (even when the engine is bolted on) ?

It would help me a lot to see one that's on another Fiesta. 

Thanks!

I tried another thing. Engine running, stationary i started to shake the car front to back and the rattle is immediately there. Any key points i should check in the engine bay or suspension. 

Thank you !

Strut top mounts, end links and sway bar bushings are common faults on these.
