I had this rattle on the Elantra. Worse at idle would go away slightly above idle. Was really loud. Sounded like a heat shield was about to come off. I almost drove to a muffler shop since I was near it.
But I decided to have a look under it first.

I'm glad I did I would have been laughed out of the shop, or billed for a repair, or both.

This is what I found. Apparently I picked up a limb from my driveway and it threaded right though the rubber exhaust hanger. No damage just pulled it out.

So it's always worth a look first!

On the original topic (just because I can't help but add it) I've always found that the best fix for a rattling heat shield is a correctly-sized ball of aluminum foil applied to the right spot between converter and shield. Never fails to work.
