Exhaust heat shield

Would it be ok to remove the heat shield under the car? Two of the little stamped bolts have come off. It's rattling and banging against the exhaust. This is the third time they have come loose. It would be so much easier to remove

Its a safety thing, but my opinion would be to remove it, but others may feel differently. I just had to pull them off my Vibe for the same reason.

I took mine off with the cats.... You mean the aluminum heat shields protecting the rubber suspension/sway bar pieces? ...or the plastic belly pan? The belly pan is there to aid in cooling the engine, but many have taken it off. You need the front part to stabilize the front bumper cover/fascia.

The one on the passenger side (heat shield) protects the starter...

No I'm talking about the heat shield under the middle section of the car. I just don't want to melt the carpet to the floor

Go to an auto parts store and buy the self stick heat shield. I did that to my car after getting exhaust four years ago and it's still there doin' its thang.
