    Had my exeo 2.0 TDI st 143 CVT multitronic 6 months and I love it. However I have heard horror stories about the CVT so when I noticed a metallic rattle under acceleration i began to worry took it to a CVT specialist and preyed. Gearbox is fine heatsheilds all in tacked engine mounts all good and they still couldn't find the rattle. It's on the drivers side either front or back foot well. CAN ANYONE HELP.

    It's more of a tiny rattle than a knocking but I will check it anyway. Cheers

    I had an issue with mine in roughly the same place took me over 6 month to work it out it turned out to be the front caliper anti rattle spring that was out of shape causing the brake pads to chatter so I cleaned up the pads and caliper re-greased and put a new rattle spring in and it were cured

    Did the spring work? I’m interested as I have something similar on mine however not on acceleration but more at low speed over rough ground. I thought it was the anti-roll bar bushes so swapped them out along with the drop links but it made no difference
