rattling noise from engine bay?

Hard to explain but a rattle from the engine bay started when i was just driving about town earlier, came from nowhere and happened suddenly.. this is the sound;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClvI...e_gdata_player

Happens mostly between 1-2k revs and cracks like this, coming from engine bay but can barely hear it from the under the bonnet, just inside? seems like something do to with exhaust but im probably wrong.

Anyone shed any light?

1.2 or 1.4 8v running standard air box?

Check the air intake pipe which exits the air box and runs to the chassis leg just behind the headlamp and should sit in a bracket with a rubber insert... They can jump out and rattle on the chassis rail

couple of cable ties to hold it in place if it keeps coming out

Re: rattling noise from engine bay?

All fixed thanks to this! Used a couple of cheap cable ties, so no doubt need replaced soon but do the job for now! Thanks a lot!

Doesnt seem to be there mate, its just a rubber grommet that needs replaced, but need to get the full part with bracket from fiat as they dont do them separately. ..for some reason haha. Better off asking @sledge if hes still kicking about
