Dealership told me that it was due to a loose downpipe gasket and wanted $383 to fix it. Im pretty sure those bolts are tight but Ill check it out tomorrow to confirm.

So I bought the clip and installed it myself. No more rattle.

Thank you so much for this thread! This noise has been driving me nuts during cold start and light acceleration under load!

Will look into getting this done ASAP!

Thanks for the info and amazing thread!

A little late with my reply. Could be worse, when I brought this issue to the dealers attention due to the rattling noise I had they told me it's detonation due to dirty fuel injectors and tried to sell me a fuel injector cleaning service for $350. Told them about the TSB but they didn't acknowledge it so I bought the clip myself, installed it and the rattle was gone.
