all diesels rattle...
The problem could be moisture collecting the exhaust pipe, this is normal as hot gasses on cold metal = moisture, it drains away through a hole in the exhaust but if the car is on slight slope it will make a rasping sound as though your exhaust is blowing, I had this problem on my 1.2 and the dealer said its normal and to try starting it on a level surface and it was quiet..
BTW is the JTD a turbo diesel?? That could explain the whistle!!
