Pete has a rattle Mk 1 >mk2.5

Pete is a real MX5/Roadster enthusiast and as such owns all version of the car. He's also incredibly unlucky with his cars which suffer from just about every ailment we have come across (and a few we haven't - yet). With your help we can keep all his cars on the road and the smile on his face so please come in and see if you can help.

Pete has a rattle Mk 1 >mk2.5

Postby Mazda Mender » Tue Oct 16, 2012 7:22 am

Petes roadster has a rattle just as he hits 2,000/3,000 revs and goes, and as he comes back down through the revs, it comes back? sometimes even at tick over he can hear it.
What is it and where can he look to sort this out?

Sounds like an exhaust heat shield.
Could be the one above the back-box that protects the boot floor or over the manifold in the engine bay but my money would be on the cat heat shield.

Yeah it turned out to be the heat shield tag welds had come away at the bottom of the down pipe, so he went to his local auto factors a bought a exhaust U bolt to hold it back tight in place, the rattle has gone.
