[Video] Help With Noise at 2000 RPM

Hi Guys,

When I'm in low gears, noticeably in 1st and more so in 2nd, as soon as I surpass 1900 to 2000 to 2100 RPM, a noise is generated that seems to be coming from the back of the driver's side. It's like a rattle, but it's interestingly a bit loud. I tried my best to replicate the sound, letting the car's RPM drop to 1900 a couple of times then giving it gas, and right at 1900-2100 there is this sound that's being generated. I hope this video helps, I tried couple of times capturing the sound.

Sorry Kianfar, I couldn't make out the sound (at least, what I heard did not sound like a rattle). If it only comes on at a particular rev range, I wonder if it relates to the variable valve timing?

…or the exhaust shield at that low of speed.

Really hard to hear from video. Exactly what min:sec in video should we listen to?
