    My 2016 FR 1.4 has a rattling sound from behind the clocks at 2000 rpm. You can only hear it if you accelerate gently or say your following a tractor in 3rd and travelling with the engine doing 2000 rpm continuously. I've had a look under the bonnet and found the turbo actuator linkage is rattly when I wobble it by hand. Is this what it's most likely to be and is it anything to worry about? Thanks all.

    Actuator rod rattle is a known issue, not just on the Leon but across the VAG group; plenty of stuff on her and other places.
    It does seem a bit hit and miss though - doesn't do it on ours.
