98 xj8 rattle from rear near side???

I have a 1998 xj8 that has just started to make a tinny rattling noise from what it sounds like the rear near side (uk)
it does not appear to be the exhaust or any loose tin wear....would a bush sound so tinny if so does anyone know where to start..i belive it had new shocks fitted about a year ago and it also looks like it has had new pads at the same time...any further suggestions would be great cheers

It could be the springs on the handbrake shoes. Jaguar sell a rubber sleve to fit over the spring to stop just this noise!!

sounds to me from the brief description like you have either a water pump rattling, or a timing chain coming slack. Is the noise coming from the alternator? Never grease pulleys, ever. also the stop squeak spray is bad for your belts. Don't know why they even sell it. If you listen carefully you may be able to pin point the rattle. Is this a tick tick tick, or a rattle rattle rattle? Does sound like a water pump rattle or timing chain slap though. Hope this helps

Check the heat shield to the exhaust manifolds, good chance that the bolts on them have rusted off or is loose causing the Heat Shields to rattle making the tinny rattle noise. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know if that's making the noise, and if not we can look at other things.

Noise under hood like rattling sound


Try checking the heat shields on the exhaust pipe up front under the car. Alot of times they will loosen up, and begin to rattle. You can ither remove them, or try to clamp them.
Hope this helps!
