Hi all

Recently have noted a weird noise/rattle in high gear/low RPM. The noise is present under acceleration only. Initial thoughts were just poor driving and lugging the engine.
Then I changed gears as the indicator showed, the noise was still present.

Completely confused as to what this could be.
Any help will be appreciated!

Car is a MY'15 208 GTi

I had a rattle on mine turned out to be one of the exhaust mount fixings had snapped at the weld and was rattling on the exhaust tube
Might be worth looking

Hi all. Took the car in to get it checked by the dealer. Technician says the front left top mount needs to be lubricated. A weird fix if you ask me. Will keep you posted if it helps.

Nothing yet. Still waiting for the dealer to get approval for the work to be carried out from Peugeot South Africa.
Will update as soon as I take the car in.

Hello everyone!
Hopefully this will find those who are searching.
The weird sound was like a ringing, hollow, metal ringing.
It turned out to be the water pump pulley. so have it checked also, mine was all dry and had cracks in it.
