Hi everyone I no I’ve posted this before but it’s really doing my head in.
Right I have a rattle, when pulling of slowly in the Lower gears it also does it when I go in reverse from a stand still, basically I can go in first and in reverse from a stand still to cause the rattle,it also does it when cold and the engine revs higher, when the revs drops it stops,
I’ve changed engine mounts, but not the drivers side one, I really don’t no what to do.
Any help or advice would be great before I start ripping car apart, seat lean Cupra r 1p

Is the exhaust centre mount near the dogbone ok?

My old cupra used to do that as 1 of the bolts had sheared off due to their being flex in the dogbone mount

A powerflex insert is a good shout if you have not already got one

Also check the heatshield on the downpipe as they can rattle aswell , when you do a cold start pop the bonnet and hold the downpipe heatshield and get a friend or family to rev it , be quick as it gets hot lol

Yeah thats the one mate

Also the dogbone is the middle engine/gearbox mount near to that bracket

I just fixed a rattle on mine , when the car is cold pop the bonnet then start the car and put your hand on the downpipe heatshield where it comes off the turbo, the welds on mine had gone and caused the heatshield to rattle

Are the single or dual mass flywheels

Without hearing it would be hard to say and i bet it would be hard to get it on camera?

Dual mass as standard if its slipping chances are its a standard set up

Thanks mate well I’ll let you no how I get on fri as it’s going on the ramps, I’ve still ordered a full performance clutch set up as I do believe some of the rattle might be coming from the fly wheel.thsnks again
