Hallelujah! Do you remember a while back - I posted about a rattle I was having between 2100-2500 RPM only while the car was accelerating -sometimes. Everyone thougt it was the heat shield rattleing somewhere around the cat. When I got my oxygen sensor recall fixed, I asked them to take a look at it. They thought it would be the heat shield as well.
Well it was metal stuff rattling around INSIDE the catalytic converter. They replaced it for FREE as that is part of the 8 year emissions warranty that my 99.5 carries.
I got it fixed today - NO MORE RATTLE!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Praise Jesus - NO MORE RATTLE!! (achtung)

My catalytic converter failed as well, and sounded terrible when it was rattling about.
Replaced as well under warranty.

Re: Praise Jesus - NO MORE RATTLE!! (vwbora1)

The service writer said that they are seeing more of these lately. I hope it doesn't turn out to be a big deal. I can't tell you how nice it is to actually have something fixed for free after having the car more than 30,000 miles and almost three years!
