Fuel tank heatshield fallen off!
My 2007 model Compass, UK diesel model, had a rattle when travelling. It turned out to be the aluminium heatshield that is normally secured under the fuel tank had dropped off and was sitting on the silencer/muffler.
This was partially covered in another thread but not really answered... It looks like the best way to fix it is to take off the rear silencer box and re-fix the shield with large washers under the nuts.
Anyone done that, or will the dealers cover this design defect for free? Using aluminium and steel in direct contact leads to corrosion and all these models are going to fail in countries where salt is used on the roads in winter.
