get yourself 2 or 3 good size gear hose clamps , open them up and fasten each one together, making a metal strap , put this around the convertor ,and then just tighten them up ,when tight it will stay in place and no more noise.

I cut a hole in mine and removed a round piece of metal that was rattling between converter and shield

Catalytic converters do not rattle. If it does it will need to be replaced as it may block the exhaust. Loose heat shield?

The heat shield on top of the converter may have broken loose. it can be repaired. If the rattling is inside the converter it must be replaced.

Rattling under acceleration is most often caused by your exhaust system. Check your heat shield for the catalytic converter or muffler. It may have come loose. Also, check the converter itself to see if some of the honeycomb inside has broken.

Sometimes the heat shields around the outside of the converter break loose or rust out and causes a rattle noise.

Yes, it will loose power and use an excessive amount of fuel.

There should be no noises near your catalytic converter on your Renault Clio. If there is a noise there is most likely a part that is loose on the converter or near the converter. It may not necessarily be the converter. I would chech around the area also for other noises.

Heat shield on catalytic converter? Loose shock or strut mount? Pebbles caught in hub cap? Lug bolt fell off in hub cap?

Check your heat shield by the catalytic converter, and the strap around the muffler. The heat shield has a tendency to come loose, and the strap rusts on almost every 3rd gen cavalier I've ever seen
