    Default Exhaust heat shields

    I have noticed that the exhaust heat shield above the rear silencer has come loose, flapping about.
    The shield has worn around the nuts / washers, allowing it to drop.
    Normally I would just put a bigger washer on to hold it in position.
    The problem I have is that the studs are broken off where they fix to the spare wheel well.
    Does anyone have any suggestions how to fix this back in position?
    There must be others that have had bother with this?

    I have just replaced one and came across the same issues with rusty studs.All I did was use a few small self tappers to hold it in place.Drill a small pilot hole and then tighten it up.Make sure to use a bit of copper grease to seal the newly drilled holes.Also make sure nothing is behind the area you are going to drill through.

    Noticed the same on one of mine (the hole in the shield worn allowing it to drop past the nut). The nut was able to come off so was able to get a larger washer on. While I was there I was going to stick a washer on the other side that looked like it was not too far away from doing the same, but the nut was seized solid and I would've snapped it off if I'd tried to undo it, so I left it. If the shield hole wears on that side, and the shield becomes loose, then I'll do the same as Mick said and pop in a self-tapper.
