Hi ya I am having the same exact sound, only happens when i hit the pedal hard. sounds like little tinckle bells !! wondering if it could be low ron fuel? i am gonna try a petrol booster and 98 or 99 ron petrol. see if it's just bad petrol as the rs200 jap imports run on higher octaine fuel over there. if you solve this problem repost!! would love to know it's driving me mad if i find out will let ya know as well cheers from townie :|

In my case it doesn't sound like its comin from the engine bay more like from one of the wheels on left side but I could be wrong and jingling is the right way to describe the sound.....

I've also got a strange rattle and sounds like its coming from drivers side rear wheel. Sounds like a heat shield or something. I've already removed the heatshield that sits above the rear box as that was loose. Any other suggestions at all? Cheers guys

I think u could be right..cus I've heard that sound on other vehicles that I've driven......my brothers car (mazda) had a similar sound only a lot louder and it went away after I changed the brakes all round

Mine rattles when I go over bumps or a bumpy road. I've got hsd coilovers fitted do the suspension is pretty hard. Was wondering if it could be the anti roll bar links a bit worn or something? Been under the car a few times as nothing appears to be loose or so I'm pretty stumped at the moment.

I might well have to look into those then and check as it is pretty annoying and I can't stand rattles or anything like that.

The little clip in the nut in the top ball joint used to make a tingly noise

With mine the only way I can describe it is it sounds like a tin heatshield rattling when I go over a bump bit I've removed the rear heatshield and checked everything else isn't loose some think I'm gonna have to get it up on some ramps.

Seems like the sound happens mostly on acceleration....if I'm able to hear the sound then take my foot off the gas it stops when I get back on the gas I can hear it again.....
