I wouldn't read anything into the timing chain rattle, I had this on start up on a 3.0TDI D3 for at least 2 years before I swapped it out for a D4, never had an issue starting even with only 5 working glowplugs. (1 duff one seized in the head that wouldn't come out).
I still think it sounds very likely to be the starter.
