My xc90 has a rattle that is very apparent at lower speed.

Resolved Question:

My xc90 has a rattle that is very apparent at lower speed. It is more obvious from inside and sounds like there is something loose in the engine. I've been told this is the air con compressor, part no 36001066 - does this sound possible.
I've fixed things before under recommendation and found it is not correct.
Also this Volvo part is about £450, would a recon one do or is there an other supplier that makes this part.
Just not wanting to spend £650 (by the time it's fitted) to find I still have the rattle.
