when my cars running i can hear a slight rattleing noise its coming from behind the camshaft angle sensor front of exhaust cam you can not hear it on tick over but if you give the car a rev from under the bonnet you can hear it clearly but you can not hear it if you are in the car i took the cam covers off and theres nothing obveous i can see

SHOULD I BE WORRIED?????

Probably a snapped mainfold stud or 2 (very common) also possibly the CAS or the camblet slapping around if it's lost tension, it's really hard to find a rattle in that area but try using a long screwdriver used as a stethoscope and try taking the top cam belt cover off to see if the belt is ok...

Check the aircon pump, my car has similar symptoms and im pretty sure it is the ac pump,

mine is just the same sounds like it is coming from the ex cam area, but then i put a steth on the ac it was loudest,

also worse when cold if that helps. (almost not there when hot)

let me know what you find.

Cheers

(hope this helps! it was stressin me for a while before i found it)
