I have just noticed over the past week that my transmission has started rattling. Atleast i am pretty sure it is my transmission anyway...

When i put the car into DRIVE and put my foot on the brake and press the acelerator slightly (to about 1000rpm) there is a rather loud rattling noise coming from under the car at the front. When in REVERSE or PARK or NEUTRAL there is no rattling, only when in DRIVE.

So.. what would cause rattling in my transmission? can i just get a tranny service and will this get rid of the rattle.

Any help will be appreciated.

Do you ever hear it when driving regularly?
Or only when applying brake?

Could be some sor or loose metal in your oil and noticed when going through torque converter... only a guess.
When was the last time your auto got a service?

all i know is its had every service done by Holden on time apart from the 70,000k and 100,000k service, so if holden service the transmission on any services it would have been done, other then that i wouldn't really know. Im going to book it in tomorrow for a service and see what happens after that.

Get your exhaust mounts and mufflers checked, often it's something simple like that.
