i'm glad i searched before posting! hadn't spotted this thread before.

After hearing a rattling noise from the exhaust on sunday, i took the car to the place that fitted it for them to check it out, they called me over when it was on the lift and pointed out it was the heat shield above the rear section of the exhaust, itwas held on at one point, and promtly fell off(glad i wasn't driving).

The guy said he wouldn't bother replacing it, as not a lot of heat is emitted rom the rear section, and it shouldn't be a problem, he said if i did it would need to be bought and fitted by nissan.

Thoughts anyone, should i be worried? do i need to urgently replace it, or wait til it warms up? any ideas of i could get the part non stealers? hopefully it won't affect the 8 hour drive i have to make tomorrow!

cheers

if its hanging off, then the attachment points are probably corroded, so its a question of replacing or not i think, i am going leave mine off and see what happens, done some long journeys since and had no problems.

Dunno how true this is, but my thinking would be, if its hanging off or loose then lots of salt and grit and other nasty corrosive stuff is gonna be getting up in there, so u should decide soon, go into ur local ATS or whatever and get them to have a look, mine just took it off and charged nothing
