    Hi all,

    I have most of my car apart replacing things as part of planned maintenance ready for next year.

    I really wanted to give the exhaust heatshield a clean, and having removed the visable bolts from the top, I can see 3 rivets, two at the top and 1 at the side.

    Is this normal? Is there a better/easier way to remove the shield for cleaning?

    Many thanks

    Looks like “this guy” is me! :)

    Do you have a photo? There are a few exhaust headshields.
