Hello everyone,

I'm hoping to tap into your collective knowledge about my beloved 6!
This morning when I got home from work I noticed a metallic rattling sound from the engine bay. It sounds almost life someones dropped a bb in there.
The sound happens the clutch is half in when the cars in 1st. - ie as if to pull away. The engine speed is about 1200 rpm.

I popped the bonnet and had a listen with the misses replicating the sound with the hand brake on. It sounds like its coming from behind and under the engine on the side of the Aux Belt.

My car is a 2004 1.8 ts.

This noise is really annoying and worrying me that it could be a really serious problem.

Any ideas/ advise would be really appreciated!

I have two videos of the noise also.
