Rattly part on exhaust pipe

Hi all,

Noticed that my 986.2 is vibrating from the rear on startup/idling (prob does driving too, just can't hear it). It seems to be some metal cover of a pipe (exhaust i think)

In lieu of me not being mechanically minded and not knowing anyone who is, can someone point out if it is a potential problem or not.

there doesnt seem to be a 'cover' over the same exhaust pipe on the other side.

is there anything I can do to stop it vibrating, fixing it on or removing etc?

thanks in advance

It is probably the heat shields on the cats, up by the manifolds and you need them. Look around on the forums, a common problem and several folks have reattached them by riveting metal and re-screwing them, or you can spend around 80? bucks each to replace them.
