Hi, I'm experiencing an annoying metallic rattle from underneath my 2011 Grand Cmax Titanium X Auto. It seems to be coming from the back off side, and sounds like a loose bracket or something. I cant visually see anything loose underneath, and when I brake it stops the rattle. It was suggested it was the anti roll bar link arm bushes were worn, but local main dealer have checked and they are fine. Any ideas please?

I'll speculate that it could be loose baffles inside one of the exhaust boxes or a loose heat shield above.
Try tapping gently on the boxes to see if you can recreate the rattle. I've experienced it more than once in my motoring career. You can't see anything obvious because it's likely inside or above a box.

Could actually be the brake pads rattling, whip the wheel off and see if the brake pads are moving within the calipers?

Had the caliper replaced and the rattle has gone. The pipe feeding the hydrolics to the brakes was crushed so very little fluid getting through.
