Unhappy Heat Shield

alright not sure what section to post this in, BUT

my heat shield has started to rattle like a *****... its brutal

I narrowed it down to the shield behind the headers.. looks like it rusted out and broke off from the bolt..

How can i get it out without unbolting my heads? cause it wont pull out but its completly loose.

Buddy, no need to panic. This is your honda's baby teeth falling off except you don't get new ones lol.


This happens to almost all civics, just as Cynikal says, pry off that *****, bend it, break it but don't **** up the )s sensor wire if you're around it.

so i broke the last bolt that was holding it on, now theres no way to get it out from behind the headers. so its just sitting there loose. ****! i think my only choice is to weld it back on. i dont think i can even do that.

Cool, I'm gonna remove mine sometime this week then.... I always thought there was a purpose.... but now I know there isn't one.... why did Honda put on there anyways? protection?

Since this issue is solved, I thought i'd ask my question (also about shields) without starting another thread....

Just recently (yesterday actually) the shield that goes over the catalytic converter (I think) was loose and dragging on the floor, so I beat it off with my club (engineering excellence at work).... so, I was wondering if it is absolutely necessary to replace it, to protect it from rocks, water, etc.?

of course they were put there for a reason. If it's the header heat shield.. it protects some of the heat from going into the engine bay

no need for the sheild around CAT its usless as well, serves no purpose. Just extra weight as well.
