Is it safe to do so??
The heatshield on my cat is rattling like a ****, very annoying
in most cases there is no problem,but,look out for rubber hoses or parts that may get burnt thru when you remove this?
or an even better suggestion,secure it on properly
and as with anything..
REMEMBER THAT IT WAS PUT THERE FOR A PURPOSE IN THE FIRST PLACE..
Is this on your exhaust by any chance ?
Mine started rattling on a new cat, remove by brother in law with a big hammer and a gs screwdriver
No worrys !
mines a focus st170 and that rattles the best advice i got was to wire it tight to the exhaust.
its a mk2 saxo vtr
just had a proper look now, seems that it isnt the heatshield
but centre of the exhaust, where it connects to the cat convertor
any ideas??? rattle seems to die down once the exhaust gets hot, still noticable but only slightly
Have your car thoroughly checked before you part with your cash?
was fine when i got it and was checked over
no big dramas anyway just me being picky
an 8 yr old car isnt going to sound brand new, although id like it to
to be honest you'd need to get someone there that knows what their looking at to find where the rattles coming from
Might be the cat.
could be a loose screw that vibrates due to sound resonance (sp) from the exhaust,but you cant tell by someone posting on the internet saying 'my exhausts rattling'
get someone who knows what to look for to have a look
Have a look at this web site, I got a back box for a vectra from them for Â£25, Theyy are dirt cheap and they deliver to BFPO for Â£16 up to 10 KG of parts.
I use them all the time and have NO problems with wrong parts etc....
