I just got my car out of the shop after over a month. I was rear ended and while they accepted liability and paid for my rental car, it still took about 45 days all together.
Anyways, for a few months now Ive been hearing the sound of metal vibrating on metal, almost like a bell. It seemed like my downpipe or something down there was vibrating enough when at idle that either it or something else was hitting another part and making the noise.
I ask the shop to check it out, praying they might repair it as part of the accident, but I was denied sadly. Anyway, the guy did tell me that its the "stabilizer mounts" that need to be replaced in order to fix the noise. he also mentioned theyd do it for like $150 or so.
Did he mean the lower engine mount, transmission mounts, or something else you think? I tried googling cobalt stabilizer mounts and nothing came up.
