first of all, i had a sleev put on the middle of the mufler, by the dealership because my mid muffler mount broke, and they said thats how they fix it......
im not sure for how long, but id say maybe since then i get this popping sound when the car is stopped, but running. since i removed my rear seat i hear it even louder, and it sounds like it MUST be from the exhaust...any idea what this is????

Re: popping sound, stock exhaust please help? (the_journalist)

It may be the cat, is it in anyway a lil rattle sound instead (thats sounds stupid but im being serious) my moms beetle had a cat failure and it only did it at idle or so i could hear

Re: popping sound, stock exhaust please help? (gnomecult)

i do hear rattling, but i figured its my fly wheel...it goes away when i step on the clutch.......but the popping is only when the car isnt moving.. that possible air leak i can beliave...from that ****ey sleeve on the muffler from the dealer....should i bring it to them?

Re: (dubnoob)
