Default Need help with some odd rattle from back of car.

Hello all,

I have a 2000 Honda CIvic EX 4 door with 54k miles, and i'm having
another issue with this car, after i bought it. There is a odd rattle
coming from the back of the car everytime the car goes over a small
bump in the road. I've emptied all the items from the car, made sure
the spare along with all tools are securely tied down etc.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Luke

Start by inspecting the exhaust piping bolts and hangers.
Grab hold of the piping (after the car is COOL) and try to
shake it a bit and listen for rattles. You can try pushing
up and down on the front and rear bumpers and see if you can
replicate and narrow down the source, too.

Also, the catalytic converter heat shield often comes loose
and needs to be re-bolted into place or torn off and
abandoned.

I've seen it where the cheap plastic hubcap covers were rattling. If
you have them, they are quickly removed for testing.

I had a similar problem with my 99 accord but in the front

the noise wound up being the sway bar links

go with OEM honda only the after market ones will wear out in about a
year
