    Hi All,

    I have a S Reg S4/B5, 127K. I have had the car for about 4 months and have started to notice a rattle noise coming from around by the CATS. I seem to remember reading about that it could be a lining inside the downpipes that could be shattered?

    I have checked the heat shields when i replaced the EGT sensors.

    any suggestions welcome.

    Rob

    It's the lining in the exhaust manifolds which can come away. That can be catastrophic if bits of manifold get chewed up by a turbo.

    Before you start to panic though, check to make sure you don't have a loose EGT or Lambda. Saw this recently on an RS4 which had a mystery rattle coming from the downpipes.
