Re: Exhaust manifold shield (fastmaxxcooper)

The rattling is easy enough to stop without removing it. Just reach over the engine, grabe the shield, and gently pull it up a little bit, putting a slight bend to it. This will stiffen it up, and stop the rattling.

just find where it's cracked, and bend it in that spot. As long as the cracked spot is contacting itself, your car will continue to moo like a cow at that particular RPM it always does.
