Just bought my first 2.5 88bhp and when i set off from lights in first gear it makes the oddest rattle, like a ball bearing in a bean can. but doesnt do it in any other gear. has anyone experienced this?

where is the noise coming from? i had an annoying rattle that sounded as if were in the dash area in front of the drivers seat at low revs. popped the bonnet and it was the intercooler on its mounts, so tightened the nuts up and it stopped.

Yep, I've looked for the rattle and I've found it. Heat shield has come away/loose at the top end, luck me eh!! I ain't got nowt to weld it with though, and I ain't never tried welding, so I just put up with it for now.
