    Exhaust Rattle

    Hi when I start my car up the exhaust rattles and then going over bumps the exhaust will rattle does anyone know the cause of this? The exhaust isnt blowing, could it just be loose?

    Cheers

    Chris

    Cat heat shields are another common area for rattles from exhaust. Get the car in the air, and have a good bash about

    Just got her up in the air not best impressed. Some idiot must have had the exhaust off at some stage and have damaged the rubber on the bracket but instead of replacing it then tightened it with a jubilee clip so the bracket has snapped are they hard to come by or can they be got fairly easy?
