Question about 2002 Subaru Forester
I have a 2002 Subaru Forest...When I left the clutch out in low gears I hear a rattling and a squeaking noise. I just replaced the altinator, so I do not know if it has something to do with that. The noise seems to be coming from under the dash on the passenger side. It is driving me nuts and I want it fixed.
Subaru's are notorious for having exhaust rattles from the heat shields on the catalytic converter.
Does the noise go away or lessen when the engine gets hot? I know it seems unrelated, but on my 2002 Impreza it made a lower groan sound at first when ever I would shift gears as the engine speed (RPM) dropped. I put up with it for a year then finally I got a stainless steel hose clamp from the hardware store and put it around the heat shield.
Truly I should just get a new catalytic converter, they are around $200, but the hose clamp stopped the noise.
This might not have anything to do with it your noise. It is a cheap and easy fix though.
