found a loud ratttle in a unit at the top front of the engine, looks part of the cooling system connected to the radiator top hose. what is this unit? is this likely to be a costly repair? assume water pump behind centre pulley...

any help appreciated, trying to save my te from the scrap heap!

yours

Sounds like the bush in the end of the belt tensioner gas strut to me. Does it get quieter as revs increase?
