Good morning all, just wondered if anyone has this as well and knows what causes it?

I assume it’s some sort of heat shield under car but have no idea really.

I’ve noticed recently that when I shut any of the doors on the Sportage, I will then hear a metallic sort of rattling sound briefly from under the car.
Just wondered what it could be?

thank you

I agree, almost certainly a heat shield. Its something I've had on a few cars, but neither of my Kia's, so far. I think all that heating and shrinking is eventually going to have an affect. Identifying which one and how to cure it is a whole different issue.

Thank you. I think it must be heat shield as sometimes it doesn’t make noise or can’t hear it anyway. Like this morning with engine and car cold, I closed the door and didn’t hear a thing.

Going through flood water/deep puddles, the force of the water will often loosen/damage heat shields.
