Hi,

I have a cat that rattle probably due to lose elements inside. Don't want to change it right now. Is there any quick fix to this? Like driving a screw in to it to hold the inside in place...?

Better to leave it alone until you can get it replaced.
Have a close look it may be a outside shield rattle.
What year and engine and mileage?

It's a 95 V6 and about 130 000km.
No, it's not the shield, did check that. :frown: When I bang it with my hand I hear the inside rattle... nothing loose on the outside.
Yes, maybe I should leave it for now. Actually it doesn't realy bother me as it's the wife that use the Blazer :)

I have to drive the Renualt Megane :frown:

If it is running ok for now just replace when you can.
If you screw anything into it it may break it up more.
It is a hard shelled honey comb type cat.
Good Luck.

I would agree, just leave it alone until you can replace it. Messing with it will only cause more problems
