Is it something you hear at idle too, or only when decelerating with your foot off the accelerator?
Is this a manual transmission?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No i dont hear it at idle only when taking foot of accelerator and its a manual transmission
Expert:  Doug replied 2 years ago.
Please reproduce the problem, but as you are decelerating and the noise is occurring, slightly apply the clutch pedal... does the noise change or even go away as you apply more pedal?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
As i apply to accelerator it goes away it doesnt do it when changing gears or with clutch in its just when taking foot of accelerator
Expert:  Doug replied 2 years ago.
Right, my question though is when you take your foot off the accelerator and the noise occurs, if you slightly apply the clutch pedal does the noise change/silence?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No it doesnt change it still makes the noise
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
But also noticed it only does it for a few seconds and stops itself or if i apply the accelerator
Expert:  Doug replied 2 years ago.
Hmm, that is not what I expected. So essentially if you free up the drive train it still makes the noise.
Do you have a rubber mallet or block of wood you can use to tap on the exhaust, specifically on the catalyst and surrounding heat shields to see if you can reproduce a similar noise while parked?
Have you noticed any favoring of turns or anything else that can influence the noise?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ill have a go at doing that cheers ***** ***** help and if i cant find anything ill get back to you thanks again mate
