Does it happen when you stand the car and rev the engine? If so, get underneath and have a look where it's rattline, identify the problem, and fix it.

They normally rattle off the back axle. It will probably need loosening off, pushing up at the join, then retightening.

@Lee - Just a quick question, would this sometimes cause the car to ratthe when the car has weight in the back? Or would that need a little bit more info?

Yeah I had it both rattling by itself, and also only when weight was in the rear over the several years I owned my two corsas. It's worth taking a look and seeing how close it is to the axle.
