    Hi all,

    I posted a few days ago about a suspected timing chain rattle but been to a garage today who's written that idea off (thankfully) but is suggesting that it might be the flywheel.
    Please have a listen to this that I've recorded


    The sound only happens on start up when the engine is warmed up, hard to do on a really cold day at all. It all also is about 4 times more pronounced when in Drive. So it's at its worse on the auto Stop/Start function.

    Mechanic suggesting perhaps the flywheel but would be a big job to find out. Colleague of mine suggesting it might be the starter motor not disengaging correctly.


    Any thoughts welcome! Has anyone had the flywheel replaced on this engine/gearbox? If so what sort ot cost should I expect?

    Thanks,

    Forgot to clarify, the car has already had it's flywheel replaced at around 70k. It's now at 111k
