    Hello All

    I have a 96 850 GLT wagon. My exhaust started making a growling noise
    that made me think I had a loose heat shield. I took it to my trusted
    mechanic and it was not a shield but the insides of my catalytic
    converter are loose and rattling around. My mechanic advised me to
    replace it as it could cause engine damage.

    I looked on several sites and found converters but I have no idea how
    to tell which one fits my car. For example:

    This site lists several ranging in price from $50 to $400. I
    understand that direct fit means that the old one can be unbolted and
    the new one bolted in. Will the $50 unit work as well and just need to
    be welded into place?

    Which one is right?
