'Spray Paint Can' - Rattling Noise - 2013 Manual 100k
2013 Manual 100,000k
Have had a mechanical rattle which sounds like a 'spray paint can' being shook when the ute is moving. Nothing stationary. Is not tied engine revs and is the same in any gear and with clutch in or out. A/C on and off.
So after a big end bearing seized on number 3 (unrelated to the noise), have had a full engine rebuild and also put a new DMF/Clutch and CSC in on spec. Was thinking the noise was the DMF. All exhaust heat shieldsand underbody attachments have been checked secure.
Well was disappointed when first driving away after the engine rebuild with new DMF, that the noise is still there. Its more prevalent out the drivers side window than the passengers. Its not there at idle/revving when stopped. Starts about 40km/h and continues with the same intensity up to highway speeds. Does not appear to get faster/louder and goes away when decelerating though about 40km/h.
Any help in solving this mystery would be greatly appreciated.
