    Default 2007 V50 rattle when starting

    I have a 2007 V50 2.4i which has a noise I haven't been able to locate.
    It's an intermittent "rattle" when starting, just after the engine
    fires, and lasts for no more than a few seconds. It never appears again
    until starting and not every time. It can happen when the engine is hot
    or cold. It's been there since I got the car over 2 years ago, and
    doesn't seem to be getting any worse.

    I have changed the alternator clutch which didn't fix it. I suspect the
    starter, which isn't all that easy to get at, so I'm seeking advice
    before I attack it. Anyone come across this before?

    Regards, Barry

    Well the thing to do is use two people. One person starts the vehicle
    and the other listens in various places. Like under the hood, each side
    of vehicle, rear of vehicle, hoist it up and listen under the vehicle at
    front and rear.

    Notice where the sound is the loudest.

    If you find a general area where the sound is coming from, you can
    safely pinpoint it by using a long cardboard tube like a roller for gift
    wrapping paper. One end to ear, the other end to various locations.
