Along the same lines... how many heat shields are there that can start rattling?:
My header shield is solid as well as the one on top of the cat (held down by hose clamps). There's also the cat bracket but last I checked on mine, the hose clamp there is still solid.
What about the one near where the flex pipe bolts to? Does that one ever start rattling?

Correction on heat shield fastener size
Just chased this problem down this weekend - the fasteners for the header heat shield are hex-flange head, M5 x 0.8 thread, 10mm long.

Gonna bump this, 'cuz I really want to do it, but I cannot for the life of me find the right size replacement bolts. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm looking for "6 metric bolts 10mm head 5mm thread size", as in M10 x 1.25(?) x 5mm bolts right? I can't find a 10mm bolt with that short of a thread. I can't reuse the existing bolts because they are no longer 10mm due to rust, and I'll likely have to get "creative" when removing them.
I'm tempted to just wrap the header at this point, but I'm sure those bolts will be just as bad, if not worse, than these heat shield bolts...
In any case, my embarrassingly loud rattley heat shield must be fixed.

|Ralliman||Awesome idea, but how did you get the heat shield moved enough to get washers under the outer two bolt holes? I've got mine moving, but it hits the fans and won't come out far enough to really get anything under the outer holes.|

|bbcobra||thats funny, I just did this to mine yesterday. I was putting a new valve cover gasket on it and decided to find my exhaust rattles. As it turns out the main source was the cat bracket. It was broke. Now I need to get a bracket for it. Sure is nice driving around without that anoying rattling going on on take off.|

|Dads03SVT||I had thought of buying a new shield but heard they were pricey. Would like a ceramic coated header for looks but was told they don't hold back much heat. Header wrap is probably alright just makes it look like a mummy....LOL I have no cat since we don't have emissions here.|
