147 Selespeed Noise - possibly cat on way out?
Over the past month I"ve noticed an increase in a noise coming from the front end of my 147 selespeed. At the start it was when i was driving but taking my foot off the accelerator. Then it was that plus accelerating - now it's audible when I have cruise control on, while on the motorway.
It doesn't sound like a grinding sound, more like the sound you get when u blow through a comb with paper wrapped round it - except it's a metal sound not paper?
It's a 2002 147 Selespeed and the exhaust is pretty well rusted. Pretty sure it's not a wheel bearing sound and I only had the belts changed 18 months ago. Could it be the cat that's falling apart?
Thanks in advance guys!
