Default '08 308 2.0HDI rattle at just over idle speed

Hi

I've got a strange metallic rattle that isn't there at idle, but at the lightest press of the throttle it appears, then as revs rise, disappears. A mechanic had a quick poke around and reckons its coming from "somewhere near the turbo, EGR and a flexible hose". Sounds a bit like a loose heat shield or maybe something in exhaust.

Any suggestions as to likely common culprits to check before I chuck it in a garage with a lift?

Thanks

Nick

Sure did - it was one of the heat shields. Had split on edge near where it was bolted. A large washer fixed it securely and now no more rattle. Took me, two mechanics and a four post lift about 15 mins to narrow it down though in the end!
