    I just bought a used Prius v and had the egr replaced and now I’m hearing a rattle from underneath. Not sure if it has something to do with the AC bc I heard the noise and turned the AC off and the noise stopped. I recorded a video where you can hear the noise, please let me know if you know what it could be coming from…thanks for your help!

    does it happen with the engine off and car stationary?

    does it always come on and off with the a/c?

    This is the first time I've seen this message at priuschat. Since googles terms of serive has changed recently, I'm curious which google service you used to post the file.

    The video is in a Google account file link. Nobody’s going to go there.
