Check all of your hanging brackets. Some of them have rubber grommets, meant to keep that from happening, that get old and fall out. You can get replacements from any parts store

SOURCE: under my vw beetle there is something

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Is it a water like leak on the tip of the muffler? If it is, then there's no need to worry. During cold start ups there really is a moisture build up on the muffler tip and it tends to leak on the floor. This is a sign that you still got a good engine for if it doesn't have moisture on start up, then that's a sign that the engine is about to fail.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

SOURCE: I hear rattling in my catalytic converter of my 1999 VW Beetle. Is there any danger in driving it?

If the rattling is the honeycomb stuff breaking up, it could clog up at the end of the converter, plugging your exhaust, shutting down the car, and leave you stranded. Sometimes they will do that, if the converter is damaged enough.

Muffler rattle


Take it back to where you had it installed and tell them! You paid for it, they should fix the rattle problem.

2000 vw cabrio had a clunking sound when slowing down when [driving it]


Could be muffler hitting body, engine mount, differential, balljoint, or cv joint.

The muffler would be more from the back.
You can rev the engine with the hood open to see if the motor mounts are weak.
Balljoints would tend to also vibrate through the steering wheel.
Cv joints would tend to also rattle on slow, tight turns.

Cant get the catalyst from underneath the car


If your "cat" is blocked and you can drive with it then go to your local muffler shop and get it removed/reinstalled, if you need it to be replaced you need a go back to VW.

If you want to do it your self you need a pipe cutting tool( a hack saw works wonders) and a pipe fitting tool (like a welding torch).

***NOTE*** your car will fail an out of province/state inspection if you do not have a "cat" and that means new car or new "cat"

Tail Pipe Replacement on a 72 VW Beetle


Heat the area by the muffler with a torch. Try not to heat the tail pipes themselves. Then take a pair of channel locks and wiggle them out.
