I've noticed this for awhile on my 2003 jetta but just today I noticed it's much worse. When I accelerate there is no noise, but when I let off the throttle I get a loud chatter/rattle. Does anyone know the possible culprits?

I've uploaded a recording.

The heat shield is hitting something?

My guess too. Sounds like exhaust rattle of some kind.

Loose heat shield or bolt on the exhaust, or the catalyst is breaking up.

how are the engine mounts looking. could engine movement during deceleration be making contact with something? do you hear any thumping sounds from time to time?

I noticed it happened on a very wet day where my engine was misfiring. It seems to have gone away. Could the misfiring be breaking up the catalytic converter and making this noise?
