    My rear exhast braket broke of might be that,mayby the little clip that holds the handbrake cable,rear disc sheild,loose rear pad caliper sticking?,best to get a free exhaust check from say qwik-fit then just have a look underneath,might be simple.

    My rattling was the rear brake pads, hadn't been fitted properly with the shims, you'll ony notice them start to rattle though once they've worn down a fair bit. It can be quite common.

    It was a horrendous noise on the outside, I though it was the exhaust.

    That might be worth a look as they were new when I got the car.

    worth checking mate, it really is suprising how much of a noise they can make.
