Hi all,

I've got a worsening rattle that occurs when I reverse and sometimes when coming to a stop in forward gears. It seems to be coming from under the steering column, but hard to narrow down as it only happens when the car is moving.  It's a sort of gentle, loose rattle, not loud but noticable. Power and handling are fine, auto gear changes are smooth. Could be a bit of tin shielding, or could be something sinister in the drivetrain - any ideas how I can figure out what it is?

Can you get someone to walk alongside car somewhere quiet to listen for noise as it could be something like a backplate. Also are you able to get underneath to cheaply around for anything amiss?
