When I first start up the engine I GET A LOUD CLATTERING NOISE

Customer Question

When I first start up the engine I GET A LOUD CLATTERING NOISE FROM BEHIND THE DASHBOARD NEAR THE sPEEDO This noise cannot be heard under the bonnet but only inside the car. However, after I have engaged the gears and sta rted to move off the noise disappears.This seems to happen whenever I start the car even when the engine has previously been running. Can you help me with a possible diagnosis.

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

I have now hired a garage to carry out a diagnosis so I am now asking you to cancel your search for an expert. Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX
