Hi all,

I'm Andy & I'm a newbie on the forum.
I've got a 316ti SE (2000 W reg)

Had an awful rattling sound recently which I managed to narrow down to the catalytic converter heat shield.

I removed the heat shield completely and this seems to have cured it.
What are the implications of no heat shield please?.
Can I leave it like it or should I try and get a replacement?.

Also there's a bad grinding sound coming from the rear wheels.
It's had new rear brakes.

Are the brakes binding or is it something more serious please?.

I work very close to a BMW specialist so I'm going to ask them to have a look tomorrow.

Any idea on costs too please?.

Thanks 1 & all
