Recently purchased an 07 plate Zafira 1.6 life.
I have noticed that under acceleration in 2nd,3rd and mainly 4th there is a rattle coming from the front/under bonnet area slightly to the left. It doesnt sound mechanical although possibly metallic.
To be honest it appears to be when engine is under labour and you can drive out of it.
Has anybody else experienced similar noise ?
Mainly noticeable in fourth at around 35 mph then accelerating heavily.

good luck, sounds like transmission bearing failure - expect a £700 plus bill and no sympathy from Vauxhall if you are out of warranty. Is the gear stick moving too when you apply throttle in gear?
