it sounds like it is lash noise from gearbox,they seem to make the noise where the engine developes most of its torque, but also check to make sure no loose shields anywhere :)

I had a similar rattle on my connect worried the shite out of me anyway quick look underneath and tightend the rear engine/gearbox mount nut a couple of turns rattle gone.
Its a circular mount just behind the sump. Try it you never know :)

i had the same problem, luckily it was still under warranty as it was the gear box that was shot, all good untill the clutch went a month later due to a badly fitted rubber seal or something which was done when the gear box was fitted ... w*** haha
