*SPELLING MISTAKE* - IT IS NOT 'MKQ' ITS 'MK1'Ok guys so its progressivley getting worse, if i turn sharpley or go over bumps or pot holes in the road my car makes a loud banging noise as if thye exhaust is hitting the underneath of the car when it gets bouncy. I have jacked the car up yesterday and shook my exhaust by hand, the box was hitting the frame of the car but im not 100% sure this is the problem because as far as i can see all of the rubber clips are still in place. I have also notice that alot of the screws/bolts holding the heat protectors to the car have also become rusted away so alot of it is loose - also making a banging noise. I tried metal tie clips trying to secure the exhaust but no luck.. looking for a cheap easy quick fix please guys.

 

Thanks, mat.

I expect the knocking on the car will be the issue.

 

Metal exhaust ties are a good way to hang it there, but you could benefit from using a bit of bent metal or similar as part of that tied to the exhaust to stop it bouncing up onto the frame.

 

I have also updated the spelling error in your title ;)

Mat,

 

Are you sure the exhaust is the issue and not the suspension / springs?

ARB drop links? I'm sure they'd be screwed by now.
