Talking Fixed the JK rattle!!!!

Here is a straight forward thread on how to FIX the jk rattle

As you can see here, this broken weld which holds the heatshield on the crossover


better look at the break


and the way i fixed it, was i just stuck a washer between there and its not going to rattle house because where the weld broke there is a notch of weld sticking out which will hold the washer in place along with the pressure from the heat shild

Now this is for the people that cant weld, but if you can i would recomend it

Is the rattle present in both manual and autos? I have a rattle in 6th gear (sometimes 5th) when on the accelerator. If I let off of the accelerator it disappears. I checked the exhaust once without success, but I will check here again.
Thanks

It's a Jeep. I thought they were supposed to rattle and squeak...

I have the rattle as well. Doesn't really bother me a bit.

Great write up, I developed the "rattle" about 2 weeks out of nowhere, and just like a patient that has a cold but thinks he may have cancer, I was wondering if it was my driveshafts, but after reading this write up, I went for a look under the Jeep and as sure as there's shit in a cat, there is was, the exact same weld!! So weld ... enjoy your noise for when I get home from work I will clamp your ass shut!!

Thanks a million

I had a pretty good idea what it was, just no clue where it was. Figured I would look here to see if there was a usual suspect and whatdayaknow! All 3 welds were broken on mine, couple hose clamps and it's quiet as can be. Thanks guys.

Here's how I fixed my rattle, but I wouldn't recommend it. A little hard to tell in the pic, but the pipe is almost smashed flat lol.

Looks like the factory already put on straps?
I'd bang around with a rubber mallet and see what makes noise.
