you gotta duplicate the rattle while on a hoist and then try holding diff't heat shileds (make sure the car is cold) till the sound goes away. act accordingly, some of them will have rusted through, some you might be able to fix somehow (if they're bent)

If you can hear the rattling, the hole(s) is already rusted out, hence it rattles at certain rpm.

Get rid off it, and get a new one from Honda. Get tons of rust proof paint coating on it, then finish it off with layers of high heat paint to make it last a bit longer. Otherwise, just tear it off and let it be.
