Shield (?) rusting off

Hi all,

Been gleaning useful info off these forums ever since I got my 2003 SE 2.0L a few weeks ago, and now I have a question I was wondering if anyone could help with:

On the front of the engine there's a piece of metal bolted on, two bolts on top and two on the bottom. Looks like a heat shield, and it has the universal 'do-not-touch' symbol embossed on it, but I can't for the life of me find the exact name or a replacement for it. It's rusted through at 3 of the 4 bolts and is rattling around pretty badly at times. Anyone know exactly what this is and where I can find a replacement, or if I can even just take it off and go without? Thanks much!

I can post pics of the part if necessary.
