Hi there, thanks for accepting me! I have an 05 1.2l Fabia, unfortunately she's reached the stage where everything is starting to go! I had the front exhaust replaced on Monday and since then she's developed a random rattle, or rather a vibration. I first heard it when I accelerated going up a hill, my mechanic has had a look and has tightened the clamp (?) holding it but says he can't see anything loose. A few days further on, it doesn't do it every time I accelerate, and sometimes does it when I'm not accelerating and travelling on a relatively smooth road. It sounds metallic, or 'tinny', I just wondered if any of you had any ideas what it might be, please? Many thanks!

Sounds like an aftermarket part that doesn’t fit very well is hitting something when the engine moves under acceleration
Thanks, it's going back in for some more work doing next week so I'll suggest that to him! Much appreciated🙂
