Nice pics.

I think its because the timing is out the engine rattles not the variator that rattles, the oil seal and spring start to fail causing the inlet cam not to change the inlet timing.

"I think" so I'm expecting to be corrected....

No its definatly the variator that rattles. I think its caused by the splined shaft wearing, and the rattle is caused by the clearance between the shaft and the 'gear'.
