Unhappy 1994 E36 318is - Knocking / Rattling Noise When starting & swicthing off

Please help or advise

my car E36 318iS 1994 L reg 1796cc coupe


I get a Knocking / Rattling Noise When starting & switching off the car for the first time eg: in the morning , once car is warmed up - starting & switching off engine theres NO noise.

The noise appears to come from the middle of the car like the gearbox, i have had a look underneath the car and the exhaust appears ok - and ive changed the gearbox oil- and the driveshaft coupling seems fine aswell.

im hoping its not the gearbox ie clutch or gearbox throw out bearing etc

anybody got any ideas - what could the noise be

PLEASE HELP N E 1......thank u

It maybe a loose heat shield under the car or one that is sometimes bolted to the exhaust itself, so when its warmed up everything has expanded, then you get no noise

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
