If it's the heat shield, it will not just go away...
If it's like the one on my 2.0 (cracked on one side) You can do two things: 1. Get another one 2. Take it off... If you do one of those thing, it will go away... http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

i had mine welded for 10 bucks at my local repair shop, just thought you might like to hear about it. maybe you can get the same at yours. on my upper heat sheild i just used a few large washers bought at the hardware store to fill the large gap where the smaller sized nut had wiggled through and made the hole too big for it to stay in place..
the heat sheild is there to dissapate heat, without it eventually certain plastic and rubber parts in your engine compartment will cook, prematurely aging them causing them burst or crack. thats why theres a hose leading from the MAF to the upper heat sheild. it also keeps the excess heat from transferring to the other engine components and passenger compartment (which could **** up your heater and dash components, expensive stereo equip, etc) FYI
BTW never go to the dealership unless you like being forcefully entered by large men. they will screw you hard and then leave you wondering WTF happened

examp catalytic converter:
pignitaro dealership $700 without labor

my local shop $215 with labor
i would choose this one
