First rattle only happened at idle when cold and reverse was selected, it is an auto. Now the rattle happens even in park or drive. The rattle can also be produced when backing off in low gears in manual selection. First I was told it was the Cat's and then the centre muffler, Exhaust system changed to almost new 2nd hand system that fixed it for about 1 week, now back rattling as before. When the tail pipes are pushed up or down by hand with sufficient force the rattle stops. Maybe rubbers or hangers?

Might need to get it on a hoist and inspect it.
Check all the mounts, and check that none of the heat shields are loose, or touching the exhaust.

Thanks for the reply but this has been carried out 3 times now with a complete exhaust removal and replacement with heat shields checked for clearance and loose fittings.

You didn't put in an exhaust with bi model mufflers did you? (Even if that's disconnected)

Sounds like the top of the cats concertina fittings, [expansion units at the top of the cats]

No mods to the exhaust ,it is standard, but thanks for your interest. I think it may be hangers or rubbers but that means on the hoist and removal again, nothing was found faulty the first time but it did fix it for about a week.
