I have had my exy for over 100,000 klm now and I have started to develop a bit of a noise that has me stumped.
As I accelerate (not every time, mostly uphill with light acceleration) I hear what can only be described as a tinny rattle.
Sort of like a piece of sheet metal vibrating against another piece of metal.
It seems to coincide with a light vibration from that car, but I think the vibration is causing the rattle, not the cause of the rattle, if that makes any sense.
If I hit the accelerator hard, the vibration and ensuing rattle does not happen.
Also on the flat, if I lightly accelerate, with little load, I seem to get the same noise, but a little more muted, probably because of road noise.
Again, if I plant it, no noise other than the throaty growl from the exhaust.
The car is not performing any different in any way and I'm getting great mileage 8.1-8.3 L/100k.
I have been all over the underside and there are numerous metal attachments to the exhaust some if you hit them sound similar, but I dont think these are vibrating and even if they are I cant make them any tighter.
Anyone got any suggestions?
Or should I just wrap the whole exhaust in exhaust wrap and hope for the best?
