heat shield shenanigans :)

Ok so:

The Jeep's heat shield right above the catalytic converter is driving me absolutely nuts! The thing has been loose for a few months and making all kinds of obnoxious rattling and banging noises while driving/going over any kind of bump.

So Tuesday I took it to get inspected and everything passed fine and the guy tightened the thing back up again but also told me that the converter itself is a bit loose so theres still some vibration/rattling noise while driving/ going over any kind of bump. I checked the shield and it still appears to be on tight. Is there anything i can do to stop the converter from rattling etc?

Find out where the rattling is coming from and tighten it up. Unless it's an interior rattle, then you'll need to replace the cat.
