    Hi was just wondering if someone might know I have a slight rattel if I rev the car in neutral. so I rev it and as the revs drop down got like a rattel it so annoying but does not do it on tick over on 1.8T 53reg.

    Check exhaust heat shields

    I have a similar problem with 02 1.8T. On mine the alternator pulley is siezed solid. This is causing the tensioner to
    Bounce around like crazy, Resulting in a rattle.
    I would look at that, if it is that and it's left, it will destroy the tensioner and belt.
