Default Just bought my 1st Boxster, strange rattle rear left ??

I hope someone can help. I am in the UK, and have a 1999 Boxster.

It has developed a metallic rattle (back left corner of the car) when
driving over bumpy roads. (Sounds like beer bottle tops in a bag). I have taken it to my garage, and they cannot find the source of the rattle.

Has anyone any experience of this problem ??

New to this forum, so any help most appreciated ! []

I have a 98 Boxster with similar rattle. Had it checked out at the garage and turned out to be heat shield that sits above exhaust - rear left. Apparently this is a common problem - corrosion causes plat to work loose. Eventually the shield on mine became completely detached from bracket and I managed to pull it free with my hand. You can actually see the plate if you slide your head under rear left side of vehicle.

I have read on a couple of forums that the heat shield does not need replaced as no problem without one. I am not 100% sure about this and intendto look in2 it further.

Hope this is off some use to you (let me know if successful).
