I have a crack in my heat shield which is causing a rattle. I tried using hose clamps to dampen the sound, didnt work.

What are the disadvantages of removing the heat shield?

Is it worth replacing?


Thanks
Shane

It's not needed at all, if it is the upper CAT one then it is just to keep heat out of the cabin but I have mine off and can't tell any major change in temp. 2 others of mine have fell off and nothing is going wrong. If it is the upper cat one though be careful of the O2 censor. Good Luck.

well it was suggested before by MD...you can try going to a local muffler shop and ask them to tack weld it for you....they shouldn't charge you more than $10 even if that...

I heard it was used to keep the grass from setting on fire incase you park over it. I might want to keep it in this case because I ocassionally park in people's yards for parties, etc...

I dont want to buy one though :/
