    Hi, my car has picked up a very annoying rattle which is getting worse!
    the rattle sounds like it is coming from below the handbrake area but slightly more towards the passenger side seat. I have had it checked by a garage when i got my downpipe sorted and they said it wasnt the exhaust, which is what i thought i would be. any other ideas as to what could rattle like mad in that area? it only does it at just below 2k revs and usually at low speed or when the revs are dropping.

    cheers

    heat sheilds maybe? You could jack the car up and see if you can see anything rattling.

    I'm fairly sure it is the exhaust mate.....

    the car had a centre section made up by longlife in plymouth, it never sat quite perfect on the centre cross member, so I think that's where your problem will be
