    Exhaust Heatshield

    Hi Chaps, noticed a rattle as I pulled out of drive over the weekend, looked under car and the heatshield above back box was resting on the backbox as the 10mm nuts had corroded through the heatshield itself. I managed to undo one of the nuts (nearest one) and put a larger steel washer in place...

    Exhaust Heatshield- what does it do?

    Heatshield mounting

    Hey guys, I've got an irritating vibrating type sound when i'm doing about 80-85mph and it sounds like its coming from the mid-back area. There's 2 types of sound, there's a clangy metal flapping sound and there's this (vooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmm) type vibrating sound, but i think they're both...

    W210 Estate Exhaust Heatshield

    Still driving along country lanes and traced an annoying 'squeak' to a small heatshield (approx 8"x6" curved profile) above the exhaust tailpipes. I pulled it off as it was about to fall of its own accord. Will I cause any heat damage whilst this is not in place? I would have refixed it but...

    w124......rattly heatshield

    The exhaust heatshield seems to have shed its bolts (corroded and snapped by the look of it). Question is can I get the bloody thing back on without having to pull the back box off etc. Any advice coz its rattling like a bugger?
