Weird Rattling Noise

Hello,

I have a 2001 Ford Focus ZTS (5 spd, Ztech DOHC 2.0 L) that I Just bought from a Dealer with only 191,036 KM on her. She has been Running Beautifully

But just recently I have been listening to it more carefully to hear anything is not normal.

I Found that my Ford will Rattle when First taking off (1st gear) and When up-shifting Rattles too. (Low RPMS, between 815 - 1500) also Will sometimes Rattle when in Idle with Foot off Clutch, but when I put my foot on the Clutch the Rattling Goes away.

Im hoping it is Nothing Serious, I will post some links to the Video's I Have done tonight with the Noises. (I Talk a lot, so ill just Post the Times of the Sounds)

Video :

-Hoping its just a TOB or something as simple as a Heat Shield

-Hoping its just something Simple...

http://youtu.be/nuOhG-okxMs?t=20s (Rattling at Low RPM 2)

http://youtu.be/nuOhG-okxMs?t=45s (Rattling at Low RPM 3)

http://youtu.be/nuOhG-okxMs?t=3m55s (Going up Driveway Rattle)



The Rattling is Just Noticeable when the Radio is off, and the Blower Fan is off and it is Audible within the Cabin.

Help me out please! As I don't feel like spending money at a dealership to get it looked at, although I will if necessary!
