Engine exhaust rattle solved (finally). My GV 1.6, 2004 had a rattle from the front exhaust barrel and after living with it for a year, taking down all the pipes and finally doing it again. The front muffler was dissected beginning with the heat shield, then opened up both layers of the muffler skin to find a rotted piece of inner muffler that was partially disconnected from the end cap. No more rattle and much less backfire gurgle. So happy now, can drive without the noise and it feels great. So just sharing the victory! VNonna
