GT Exhaust Rattle


On way home tonight, my GT suddenly developed a major metallic rattle under power. It dies away when power is eased off, but when I put my foot down, it sounds like I'm towing an oil drum full of ball bearings! Get a slight judder at low power too. Thankfully only happened couple of miles from home.

Have had a quick look under car on drive with a torch, but can't see anything obvious, doesn't sound anything like as bad when static, and can't locate source. Any ideas what to look for tomorrow, when I've got some light to work with?

I took mine to my local exhaust centre and they tightened the bracket up for free - bracket was loose. Fastest way I think - easy when it was up on the ramp.

I get a slight annoying rattle near the front of the car at low revs...and it's clearly external to the engine so maybe it's the heat shield..but can't see where to look or tighten!

...and it's becoming quite annoying as it's like a tizzing rattle sound....

Any other ideas ?
