520D E60 rattle under driver seat on accelerate, dpf removed


I have just been for a drive on the motorway and the engine failure: reduced speed warning came on, since having DPF removed (gutted and welded after a DPF failure to save on cost) a few weeks ago two problems have arisen.

1: When accelerating from stand still there is a tinny rattle under the drivers seat as if something is knocking on a pipe, its quite loud.

2: Second issue is when turning left or right again from stand still there is a higher pitched noise coming from the left wheel or near the exhaust.

What should i be looking at here based on the fact that the DPF was removed. The most recent change after that was a new turbo inlet pipe which had blown off, it needed the pipe, tube and sensor from BMW (250).

Any guidance you can give is appreciated, the mechanic said he needs to take the exhaust off, after taking off the s**t stopper?

I am due to receive a new car in a week but i need to fix this to sell it but im think i need to get it to a BMW specialist not just some garage.

Is there anything i can try/look out for.

Appreciate 0
