    Default Rusted heat shield bolts.

    The heat shields around the spare wheel well have come loose. On trying to remove the rusted nuts, they have snapped off,and the heads are not visible from inside. Any suggestions from anyone who's sorted it. It may help solve a very annoying loud creaking sound.
