The third man who is keeping a lookout walks towards the house and peers into the front door to check if anyone was there.
The man under the car makes a lot of noise removing something from the underside of the vehicle and passes it out to his accomplices.
He then goes back under to finish the job and uses a drill to remove the catalytic converter.
The thieves then make a quick get away, removing the lever and running to a car parked behind the driveway.
It is not known if any arrests were made and Metropolitan Police have been contacted for comment.
