Alfa 166 3.0 rattle


I've also got a rattle at idle that I'm not sure about. It seems to disappear when you rev it slightly . . . sounds like it could be the exhaust down pipe . . . not sure though.

Hi, check the bracket which joins the two downpipes, may have come loose, prob find the bolt has rusted solid but a couple of spot welds will sort it. HTH
