    Rattling from engine and creaking steering wheel with a knock

    Hi

    My CC I got a month ago from The Car People Wakefield (I DO NOT RECOMMEND you buy from them)started making noises as above.

    The engine is making a rattling noise around the left and back of the engine. It started while driving in town and autostop kicked in, when the engine started there a noticeable tapping/ trickling that disappeared around 1800 RPM. See the video below. Any ideas?

    Second problem is the steering is making a creaking sound at more than 45 degrees. Also when I turn the steering to the left and start straightening the wheel there's a knocking noise. Again any advice?

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    First video is not clear I admit. The sound I am experiencing is as follows, though it is not my car



    I think the steering wheel video is clear and a mechanic at the car people has admitted he has head the sounds they're are just not able to identify the source.

    It is impossible to tell from a phone recording, all I can hear is a diesel engine which sound awful even when new...
