    I'm getting a rattling metallic sound whilst driving along. Sounds like lhs with the windows open but I could be imagining it. Checked underneath for anything loose and fixed an exhaust shield, but that wasn't it. Played around a bit and "seems" to go when the clutch is dipped, so thinking clutch/gears?
    It's a D2, td5, 51 plate, 140,000 miles.
    NB Did change gear oil about a year+ a go.

    Any ideas?!

    If it's quiet when clutch dipped it could be the release bearing rattling about ?

    Have a look at the turbo heat shield, the bottom brackets shear and can make a hell of a noise.

    halfway between here and there.
    if the noise goes away when you press the clutch pedal,then tis either the DMF or the release bearing.

    Could well have been the release bearing then. When ours went it started off with 3rd being a pain to get then slowly got worse untill no gears could be selected.

    The bearing is mounted on a plastic cage which connects to the release fork. When the bearing gets hot it melts the plastic meaning it can't fully release the clutch.

    Double check the oil first though as an easy start point.
