    Default Rattle in the 1.8vvc

    Hi all i have an 06 plate vectra sri 1.8vvt and it has developed a rattle from by the front, sounds like an exhaust bracket or something but im wondering if theres any common faults or weakness that can cause this? Sounds like a really tinny kinda sound

    Could be the heat shield over the exhaust. It goes from the engine bay to by the fuel tank. Mine is loose both ends and rattles like crazy. The bolts holding it on seem to rust and snap off. Get under the car and give it a good tap and shake, when I did it the sound was exactly what I hear while driving. The previous owner of my vec has drilled a couple of screws in but it needs more.
