How can I protect my catalytic converter?
To help protect your car from catalytic converter thieves, police forces across the country have issued the following advice:
•Park in a locked garage or in a well-lit, densely populated area.
•Park close to fences, walls or kerbs with the exhaust being closest to the barrier; this will make the theft more difficult.
•Avoid mounting your car on the kerb to park as it gives thieves easy access.
•If your catalytic converter’s bolted on ask your local garage to weld the bolts to make it more difficult to remove.
•Consider a ‘cage clamp’ which locks around the converter.
•Speak to your car dealership about a tilt sensor that activates the alarm if someone tries to jack up your vehicle.
•If you see someone acting suspiciously under a vehicle, report it to the police.
Can I claim on my insurance for a stolen catalytic converter?
Yes. You should be able to claim on your insurance for the theft of the catalytic converter, though your claim would be subject to the excess you have agreed on your policy. 
You could make a claim whether your policy was fully comprehensive or third party, fire and theft.
However, the claim would impact on your No Claims Discount, unless it has been protected with an optional extra on your premium.
