Throttle rattle

Recommended Posts

Advice please!


I’ve noticed that under a light throttle, I get an odd rattle coming from the engine! It’s directly linked to the amount of throttle I apply and in part the speed I am going.

the best way to reproduce is @70mph on motorway with the cruise on - so not much throttle to maintain speed. Press through it to speed up and it’s gone...

annoyingly I can’t reproduce at idle so I’m struggling to pin point the location, but I’m confident it’s the (UK) driver side of the engine...

suggestions welcome with my first plan to look for any loose shielding or other parts tat may rattle / resonate at certain speeds
