Default low speed noise

When i drive at very low speeds i am getting a strange jangling sound from underneath, it sounds like its dragging a chain along the ground, i have had a look in the arches,, exhaust etc but cant see anything wrong, any ideas? MATT

Have you placed the car on a lift and examined exhaust system heat shields?

no had a quick look underneath and banged the exhaust no noise , its strange as it only makes the noise when the car is moving at low speeds, when its stationary or moving at speed the noise disappears

Put the car in neutral and see if it comes back at a higher rpm, I hit a rock and my exhaust head shields were rattling like yoda said. You will need to be directly under the car to see it, you wont see anything from the wheel wells. I just removed my lower exhaust shields, they kept dragging on everything lol
