Help Identifying Part - Missing Part and Vibration Noise from Rear

(I am trying to Identify the part below..)

Hi, I have more and more vibration noise comming from the rear of the car, always when RPM match 1000 or 2000, and engine is working. This guided me to a loose part around the muffler.

I jacked the car today and give a look under it, to find a missing bracket on the Catalyser on the Left Side. It is a Porsche Boxster 99







I searched in my Bentley Service Manual and I din't really found what that bracket was and where is it going. Can someone help me to Identify the missing part ? thanks

Sorry Man, its a brace thats welded to the side of the muffler can and since its missing it was either cut or broken off. U'll have to buy another muffler can or have a muffler shop weld on another.

oh.. hmm.. damn..

Thanks a lot for Helping me Identifying the Part, now at Least I know what the problem is.

Probably than I could do a custom bracket, just so the vibration noise stop. The muffler Can is pretty accessible and I'm sure there is something to do with that

Thanks again for the fast reply.. it's very appreciated!
