    Thank you guys for your suggestions. I really do hope that this is the problem because it is driving me crazy.
    Next week I will go for a test drive with something between the finisher panel and the windscreen as Blackie suggested.
    Thanks for the pictures DMC-81.

    If this is causing the problem then it's going to be a nice and easy fix.

    I will keep you posted.

    Took the car for a test drive yesterday.
    I put a piece of paper between the black finisher panel and the windscreen as Blackie suggested.

    Blackie and DMC-81 you are my heroes!!!!

    The rattling sound completely disappeared.

    Today I removed the finisher panel and there was no foam weatherstripping at all, or even a trace of weatherstripping. So I inserted a rubber weatherstripping (Ä1,00), as shown on the pictures by DMC-81, and the problem is completely fixed.

    Many, many thanks for your help!!!

    That's great news.

    See, who said DeLoreans are expensive to maintain ?

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"
