noise from under the car "the exhaust system"!

Hi everyone!

i have an Alfa 147 1.6 TS, its my first Alfa and i just bought it few days ago, but i keep hearing a sound coming from under the car "99% i think" its coming from a lose pipe that has to do with the exhaust system, i have a friend who has also 156 Alfa and he is telling me its kinda of a common problem with the Alfa's to hear that sound as he has the same problem too, but i do believe its something loose that needs to be tied up or kind of a rubber holder that needs to be replaced to hold the "pipe" to the under body of the car firmly.

if anyone can advise me please of what it can be, and how to fix it.

appreciate your replys in advance.

wish all a enjoyably ride

If its a rubber hanger, then they're about 7 and there could be a few, so worth checking. Also there is a flexi section at the bottom of the manifold, which could also be your problem

Cd also be a bracket which supports the exhaust pipe at the front of the engine, as they often break. If you take off that thin metal plate over the exhaust pipe you should be able to see what I'm talking about.

Could also be as simple as a lose heat shield tapping the top of the exhause, just rip it off if it is

you need to get under the car, should be pretty obvious, and simple
