[DML] Re: Annoying rattling sound, help!

A thought has just occured to me.

On many DeLoreans I notice the engine cover sits
firmly in place and makes no contact with any of the
engine components. On mine, the engine cover makes
contact with the Coolant bottle (still the original)
cap because it seems to sit higher up in the
compartment. It also makes contact on some lines on
the left hand side just back of the AC compressor.
Because of this, there are dents and bends in the
metal screen of the cover. 

Because of the slight play that exists in the metal
cover while it is latched down, is it possible the
rattle sound is coming from the Engine cover making
contact with the coolant bottle cap and that an
acceleration is needed to rattle the cage enough?
Should it be that there is no play at all in the cover
when latched down?

I'll check on it later in the week by insulating the
areas on the cage and see if the sound dissapears.
