    Exhaust rattle on B5 S4 (prob).

    Ok, i got the facelift S4 and have been told by you guys on here it is the heatshield rattling, and nothing serious, which is (financially) good news. It does sound like a bolt or something that vibrates under certain loads.
    It is really doing my head in, as I am noticing it more and more.
    Can anyone who has had it and solved it show me how to stop it to save my sanity please??! Or anyone local have a butchers (Craig)?

    It is my only gripe with what is otherwise a superb car, with excellend performance and real world comfort and style.

    Cheers me dears.

    bet it is the heatshields. Engine out to replace so I'd learn to live with it if it was mine !You may be able to wedge some of the heatproof exhaust wrap stuff into a suitable place and fix it that way ???
