Terios Engine Rattle

Hi, Is it coming from the Engine Scratch one-s head ?, Have a look at the Heat Shields on the front Exhaust, as they can rust around the bolt heads or tack welds and become free to rattle seen this a few times, worth a look plus check out the Exhaust it,s self as the inside of the rear box can rattle, just tap it to check it out.

Rattle.

2004 Sirion 1300 4 Track. And I love it.
Don't like the new shape much.

Could be the Serpentine Belt needs adjusting, (Used to be called the Fan Belt in my day)
Now it does the power steering / Air con etc.

This problem has been reported on here many times.
The adjustment/or replacement of the belt would appear to cure the problem.

What engine K3 or EJ.?

K3 has a Cam Chain. EJ has a belt which MUST be changed every 60,000 miles.
