Exhaust Rattle only when Hot.... :-(

Hey guy's/girls..

I'm struggling to work out where my exhaust is rattling.

Got a stealth box, it has had a new bracket fitted at the back with extra padding so it does not sag.

Had the exhaust on a ramp and given it a good shake but cant seem to find the place its rattling. It was not hot when on the ramp, but i couldn't see where it could be hitting anything.

It only seem's to happen when i pull away... ANY help would be great as this is really starting to piss me off!

Cheers all.

Guy's i think you might be right.... :-(

Just been to have a play, not done much... but push the centre section it sound like the baffles are loose.

Anyone know if i can buy just a mid section for a KTR stealth?

Cheers

Are you the 1st owner of it? As you get lifetime warranty, i think some older stealths were prone to this problem.

if it's not warranteed, i believe KTEC do sell the individual sections but best check directly as it was a while since my enquiry

mine was rattling , only when hot aswell. i found out it was my back exhaust mount ( backbox) which touched the mount on the car. This one had no more space to adjust ; the oval holes used to mount it to the car were at it's end. I gave the holes some extra space by drilling them out a bit and mounted the bracket back a bit , so the exhaustbracket was'nt touchin the mount bracket anymore... that make sense ? :eek:

The exhaust expands something like 3-5mm when hot in total length.

Yeah, with you.. I still think it might be touching at the back too.

Going to see if i can do what you have suggested...

that'll be the centre section, common fault on the stealth systems. i got a centre section from ktek i never fitted if you want it?
