    Exhaust/Heatsheild rattle?

    Hi is there a common part on the exhaust to become loose and cause an annoying rattle/vibrate?

    My car started to make this noise a few weeks, I had someone fixing a fault on my car the other day, and i tried to show him but it would not do it, i drove it today a bit, nothing all morning,, but later on in the day it started again,

    if im just driving it in say second or third, and accelerate, and let off, its like a rattle vibrate noise, hard to explain,?

    And i cannot tell if its from the front or back.its quite loud, Is there any common problem areas to look for? thanks

    mine does it too!

    it's the heat shield on the car on mine, my last car did it too.

    I looked under mine on Sunday to see it's actually been wrapped up with a coat hanger, so it's obviously gone in the past and been badly fixed.

    I'll rip it off when I get a chance

    Hi if it turns out to be that heat shield, would it not cause a problem removing it? could i not get it welded?

    Also do you mean the sheild over the cats? thanks

    ? That makes no sense, that thread and video is about , People getting a tapping noise from startup under load, being the, camshaft tensioner? nothing about exhaust rattle.
