Help on MX5 please

To all mechnical types on the Forum PLEASE HELP!

Have a friend visiting us over the weekend with a MX5

It has a most peculiar noise. Best way to describe it is to imagine several very small metal washers rattling around in an empty tin can.

It only happens when the engine is off load (i.e on tickover or when cruising). If you accelerate (or even more weirdly, engage the clutch) it goes immediately. Any ideas of what to look for please
